I just tried to buy some of this stuff and it came up "restricted" and the grocery store wouldn't sell it to me but they didn't know why they couldn't. So I come home thinking I am going do die from the last 2 pints I ate recently. I look up the recall to see this site and am now angry that I couldn't buy it because of a typo....

I got scared too but all is well now! I think the pops are sensational and HOPE HOPE HOPE that they have only 85 calories, which seems IMPOSSIBLE but I am going along with it! Great stuff. There is only ONE store in my town that has them and that's a shame because it would be nice to be able to buy them everywhere!
