Breyers Issues Nationwide Recall, Allergy Alert Over Unlisted Almonds
Unilever has announced the voluntary recall of a small number of tubs of Breyers No Sugar Added Salted Caramel Swirl because the labels did not identify almonds as a potential ingredient. The product was distributed nationwide.
The product in question has a unit UPC code of 7756738393, with a best before date of NOV2915GB, and was distributed in 1.5-quart paperboard tubs. Consumption of the product is potentially life-threatening for those with an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds.
Customers who purchased any ice cream with the listed UPC code are asked to discontinue use and retain the box in order to get a replacement coupon, Unilever instructed in a press release. No other Breyers brand products have been affected by the limited recall.
The issue was first brought to Breyers’ attention through a customer complaint and, thus far, no allergic reactions have been reported.
Breyers will also issue a notification on the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) website.
