On Wednesday, April 17, Ben & Jerry's revealed that they have recalled two different flavors. The popular ice cream company made the decision for the recall due to the fact that the labels were not printed with correct information, a potentially life-threatening mistake.
According to reports, the pint-sized containers of Ben & Jerry's Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk and Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey have been recalled. Neither of the products' ingredient lists reflected the fact that they may contain almonds, Brazil nuts, and hazelnuts.
The Food and Drug Administration made the announcement this week. They said that the Seven Layer Bar flavor has a Consumer UPC code of 076840104246. The Chunky Monkey pints have a Consumer UPC code of 076840100354.
According to reports, both flavors of the Ben & Jerry's ice cream were sold around stores nationwide.
The FDA said, "Unilever's ongoing investigation shows that the issue stemmed from an error from one of its nut suppliers. The situation has been remediated."
Consumers with nut allergies are encouraged to stop eating the product immediately, save their containers, and call 833-236-1237 for further instruction.
