Ben & Jerry’s Recalls Select Products Due to Undeclared Tree Nuts
Ben & Jerry's has issued a recall of certain brands of their deeee-licious ice cream due to the possibility some of the containers may have tree nuts that are not listed on the packaging.
The voluntary recall, issued on Monday, covers "a limited quantity of Ben & Jerry’s Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk and Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey pints, which may inadvertently contain tree nuts including almonds, Brazil nuts, and hazelnuts that are not declared in the ingredient list or allergy information list." Obviously, this can be potentially life-threatening for someone with a severe tree nut allergy.
Here are the specific products along with the UPC codes and best by dates to look for:
Coconut Seven Layer Bar Bulk (sold in a tub containing 2.4 gallons)
- UPC Code: 07684010424
- Best By Date: SEP1520BJ4
Chunky Monkey (473 mL Tub)
- UPC Code: 076840100354
- Best By Dates: AUG2820BH2, AUG2920BH2, or AUG3020BH2
These products were distributed nationwide, so there's a good chance they made their way to several places in the Tri-State. If you have either of these products in your freezer (and have someone in the house with a nut allergy), the company asks you dump out the product, keep the container, and call call 833-236-1237 for further information.
