Labeling Snafu Leads to Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream Recall

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J.Unilever issued a nationwide recall of pint containers of its Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Nougat Crunch Ice Cream: Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Fudge Covered Wafer Cookies & a Chocolate Nougat Swirl ("Chocolate Nougat Crunch") because the products are missing the allergen advisory for peanuts and tree nuts.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the ingredient label on pint containers packaged for retail sale did not include this information. The affected product is sold in pint containers with a UPC of 7684020899, and date codes: JUL1113BJ1, JUL1213BJ1, AUG0113BJ1, AUG0213BJ1, AUG2313BJ1, AUG2413BJ1, AUG2513BJ1, SEP2013BJ1, SEP2113BJ1, OCT2313BJ1. The date code can be found on the bottom of the pint.

No other Ben & Jerry's products are affected by the voluntary recall, including bulk (2.4 gallon) containers of Chocolate Nougat Crunch served in Ben & Jerry's franchised Scoop Shops.
