Two Ben & Jerry’s ice cream products recalled
The FDA announced on April 15 that Unilever is voluntarily recalling two Ben & Jerry’s ice cream products because they may contain tree nuts.
Ben & Jerry’s Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk and Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey pints may contain almonds, Brazil nuts and hazelnuts that are not declared in the ingredient list or allergy information list.
The affected products are:
- Ben & Jerry’s Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk product sold in a tub containing 2.4 gallons with a Consumer UPC of 076840104246 and a best by date of SEP1520BJ4
- Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey pint sold in a pint tub (473 ml) with a Consumer UPC of 076740100354 and best by dates of AUG2820BH2, AUG2920BH2 or AUG3020BH2.
According to the FDA, both products include a “Contains Walnuts” and a “May contain other tree nuts” label on the back of the package.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these tree nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions.
