A half gallon of ice cream is also several ounces short. I remember when Breyer's, which is what we get, did that. There was no notice, just a new kind of container. It's marked as 1.75 quarts, but on the shelf it takes up the space that the old half gallon took up, and in effect is sold as if it were a half gallon.
