Unilever is voluntarily recalling pint containers of its Ben & Jerry’s ice cream that are missing the allergen advisory statement, 'Allergy Information: Fudge covered wafer pieces have been manufactured on shared equipment that processes peanuts and tree nuts.'
This allergen advisory statement should be at the end of the ingredients list but was inadvertently omitted from the recalled product.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts or tree nuts (chestnuts, Brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts and cashews) run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the recalled product, the company has said.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the ingredient label on pint containers did not include this information. This voluntary recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the US Food and Drug Administration.
No product was shipped outside of the US and no other Ben & Jerry’s products are affected by this voluntary recall, including bulk (2.4 gallon) containers of Chocolate Nougat Crunch served in Ben & Jerry's franchised Scoop Shops.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
