Consumer Alert: Ben & Jerry’s Issues Nationwide Recall for One of Its Newest Ice Cream Products

| Recall

According to the FDA, Ben & Jerry’s has issued a voluntary nationwide recall for one of its newest ice cream products out of an abundance of caution.

The Vermont-based ice cream maker announced it will recall a limited number of its Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices that actually contain Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices.

While it might seem like not a big deal for hungry customers, the recall products were wrapped and labeled as Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices and contain the known allergen peanut, which is not listed on the outer ingredient list. This could pose a high risk for those allergic to the nutty legume.

The affected products were made in the U.S. and distributed at stores nationwide.

The FDA reports that the affected product is sold in a paperboard box, containing 266 mL of three individually wrapped ice cream slices with the UPC code of 076840657940, a best by date AUG1218LT2 and lot number of AUG1218LT2.

No illnesses have been reported and no other products were included in the recall.

Consumers who purchased the recalled products can call (877) 270-7397 and request a replacement coupon.
