I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream.
Except not for Coles Mini Classics Ice Creams, which have just been recalled by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.
If you have a package of these bite-sized ice creams in your freezer, it’s time to head back to Coles for a full refund.
On 7 May 2018 Food Standards Australia and New Zealand issued a warning about the mini ice cream bars on their website for all consumers.
