Ben & Jerry’s has issued a recall for 500g tubs of its cookie dough ice cream, after internal quality control checks found that they may be contaminated with small pieces of metal.
The brand said that a “limited number” of products across four different batches were affected by the recall, with consumers being encouraged to check the codes on the bottom of tubs to see if theirs is included.
The batch codes are L62110L011, L62111L011, L62112L011 and L62113L011.
“The company has identified a specific production period during which [the products] may have been affected and, as safety remains a top priority, Ben & Jerry’s is voluntarily recalling four batch codes of cookie dough 500ml,” it said as part of the safety notice.
“As a precaution, everyone with a 500ml tub of Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough in their freezers should check the batch number of the bottom of their tub to make sure it’s not affected and, if it matches the batch numbers, they should not eat the product and, instead, we ask them to discard the product in the usual household bin.”
The recall comes less than a month after British supermarkets were forced to recall thousands of own-label yogurts, after it was found that they could contain small pieces of rubber contained within fruit conserve from one of manufacturer Yeo Valley’s suppliers.
