FRASER Health Public Health officials are asking everyone that bought Original Kulfi brand product from Supreme Ice Cream in Surrey to immediately discard the product. Product also bought in convenience stores should be thrown out due to possible contamination.
The business is licensed to sell only pre-packaged ice cream. Fraser Health Environmental Health officers discovered the homemade ice cream product being prepared in an unlicensed and unapproved facility following an inspection of the premises.
The product has been sold under Original Kulfi label, primarily to Indian [South Asian] restaurants and food stores in Surrey, as well as other cities in the Lower Mainland. The item is a popsicle-shaped frozen dairy product similar to ice cream in appearance and taste. The product is available in a number of flavours including mango, strawberry, tutti-frutti and pistachio and all flavours are at risk of contamination.
The Original Kulfi product should not be consumed because it has been prepared in a facility that does not meet public health safety guidelines, and any surplus stock should be disposed of. While no illness has been reported to date, individuals suffering from gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting, stomach cramps or fever after eating this product should seek medical attention.
