After finding pieces of plastic throughout a number of tubs, Blue Ribbon has announced a mass recall on its ice cream products.
So if you’ve got a tub of ice cream in the freezer, it’s time to pull it out and take a closer look before taking another scoop.
Being announced by Blue Ribbon’s parent company Unilever, the recall is for all flavours.
According to a statement released by Unilever, the company says that potentially affected products have best before dates between 28th April 2017 to 27th April 2018.

"We have been made aware of a very small number of cases where plastic pieces have been found in these products and could present a risk of injury," the statement reads.
"Consumers are advised not to eat the affected products and should return empty ice cream tubs to the place of purchase for a full refund."
Blue Ribbon has also taken to Facebook to answer questions and reassure consumers that the recall is simply a precautionary safety measure.

Unilever has also said that if for some reason you cannot find or clearly read the used by date the company asks that the tub also be returned for a full refund.
Tubs can be returned to any major supermarket and a receipt is not needed.
