As noted in the report, not all peanut products sold to Velvet Ice Cream are being recalled, noting that only the list of products below, along with their corresponding code numbers, are affected.

Velvet Ice Cream is a family-owned and operated business that has been in the ice cream making industry for nearly 100 years.
