PHOENIX -- Shamrock Foods has issued a voluntary recall of its Nutty Sundae Cones.

Nutty Sundae Cones recalled

The sundae cones are garnished with chopped peanuts from the Peanut Corp. of America, which is being blamed for a national salmonella outbreak.

Phoenix-based Shamrock Foods says it does not manufacture the sundae cones, and is taking a "precautionary step" amid the outbreak.

The Nutty Sundae Cone is a 4.5-ounce novelty ice cream sold to convenience stores, drug stores and food service establishments. The sundae cone has not been linked to any illness.

Shamrock Foods spokeswoman Sandy Kelly says the company is committed to ensuring the health and safety of its customers.
