Unilever is voluntarily recalling Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices because they may actually contain Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices, posing a risk to those allergic to peanuts.

The company said although the slices were individually wrapped and identified as Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup Pint Slices, the ingredient peanut butter (containing the known allergen peanut) was not listed on the outer ingredient list. 

According to the FDA, 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 recalled products were manufactured in the United States and distributed nationwide at retail stores.

The recall was initiated after receiving one consumer complaint. No illnesses have been reported.

Consumers who have purchased boxes of the above product with the affected UPC code and date code are asked to immediately discontinue use of the product, retain the outer box and call 877-270-7397, which is operational 24 hours a day, for more information about the recall and to request a replacement coupon. A consumer services representative is available between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM EDT.
