Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Recall
Ice cream lovers beware, your Ben & Jerry’s ice cream may not be what it seems!
“What’s the big deal, I love all ice cream” you may be saying, but for those with a peanut allergy, this mix up could be deadly.
There is no labeling or warning on the product containing peanuts, so those with a peanut allergy may think they are buying a safe to eat ice cream, then bite in and have a severe allergic reaction.
Ben & Jerry’s says the affected product comes in a paperboard box, contains 9 fL oz (266 mL) or 3 individually wrapped ice cream slices with UPC code of 076840657940 best by date AUG1218LT2 and lot number of AUG1218LT2.
The recall came after a customer complaint from finding the wrong product in their Pint Slices box.
The ice cream was shipped nationwide to several retail outlets, but no other Ben & Jerry’s products or flavors are affected by the recall.
Anyone who does have this mislabeled ice cream is asked not to consume it but to instead save the outer box and call 877-270-7397, which runs 24 hours a day, for more information about the recall and to request a replacement coupon.
