Ben & Jerry’s Recalling Certain Boxes of Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices


The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that a limited
number of boxes of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices are being
recalled because they may contain Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices.

Peanuts are not listed on the outer product packaging. People who have an allergy or
severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic
reaction if they consume the product.

The affected product is sold in a paperboard box, containing 9 fL oz (266 mL) (3
individually wrapped ice cream slices) with UPC code of 076840657940 best by date
AUG1218LT2 and lot number of AUG1218LT2.

The product was distributed nationwide. No other Ben & Jerry’s products besides this
specific lot of Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pints Slices are affected by this recall.

The recall was initiated after a consumer complaint revealed that Vanilla Peanut
Butter Cups Pint Slices were distributed in outer packaging that did not call out
the presence of peanut butter. Unilever, Ben & Jerry’s parent company, has not
received any reports of illness associated with this product, but the company is
voluntarily recalling this product out of an abundance of caution.

Consumers who purchased boxes of this product should call 877-270-7397 to request a
replacement coupon. A consumer services representative is available between the
hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM EDT. For additional information, please visit
