If you have a peanut allergy, be aware! Ben & Jerry’s has issued a recall of their Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices. It’s a sort of ice cream disk coated in chocolate, like an ice cream cookie. Despite the fact that the slices are individually wrapped, some Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices got mistakenly put in Chocolate Fudge Brownie boxes. Should a child or adult with a peanut allergy unknowingly bite into one of these treats, the results could be a severe or even deadly allergic reaction.
The affected product is sold in a paperboard box containing 3 individually wrapped ice cream slices. The UPC code on the packaging reads 076840657940 with a best-by date of AUG1218LT2 and a lot number of AUG1218LT2.
This Ben & Jerry’s product has already been distributed nationwide and purchased by many customers, so it’s important that we get the word out to those people. Besides Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pints Slices, no other Ben & Jerry’s products are known to be affected.
The recall was issued after a customer complained. Thankfully though, no incidents of allergic reaction have been reported so far. Needless to say, people with nut allergies, and parents of kids with peanut allergies, should inspect any treats to make sure this mix-up is isolated to the recalled product.
If you purchased the recalled product, please throw the Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices away (sorry!), but retain the outer box as proof of purchase. Call 877-270-7397 between 8:30 AM and 5 PM EDT to request a replacement coupon. For more info, you can visit www.benjerry.com.
