Ben & Jerry’s has voluntarily recalled a limited amount of its Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices for potentially containing Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices. According to the company, the slices are individually labeled as “Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices,” but the ingredient peanut butter isn’t labeled on the outside packaging.[related]
The products affected in the recall contain three individually wrapped ice cream slices and are marked with UPC code “076840657940,” best by date “AUG1218LT2,” and lot number “AUG1218LT2.” They were manufactured in the United States and have been distributed nationwide at retail stores.
The recall was conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration after the company received a complaint that the outer packaging of the Vanilla Peanut Butter Cups Pint Slices didn’t properly notify consumers of the peanut allergen.
