The H-E-B supermarket chain based out of San Antonio, Texas has issued a voluntary recall of its Creamy Creations Caramel Pecan Turtle Ice Cream in light of the possibility that it has been contaminated with pieces of wood, the company announced in a press release on Thursday.

In its press release announcing the voluntary recall, the company noted that the recall comes as a result of “an abundance of caution” – not out of necessity.

In the abundance of caution, H-E-B is issuing a voluntary recall for H-E-B Creamy Creations Caramel Pecan Turtle Ice Cream due to the possible presence of wood pieces in the product.
