Mikawaya is issuing a voluntary recall on a limited number of Mikawaya Brand Chocolate Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream because it could possibly contain peanuts, posing a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts. 

The recalled ice cream includes the following:

  • UPC code 070934990609 --- found on the back of the box.
  • Lot number LOT 090-17 --- printed on the top enclosure.
  • Sold in a paperboard box, containing 9.1oz (258g) of 6-1.5oz (43g) pieces

The product was distributed to all Trader Joe’s stores nationwide and has been removed from sale.

The recall was initiated after receiving one customer report that a Chocolate Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream contained the presence of peanut butter. Mikawaya has not received any reports of illness or allergic reactions associated with this product.

No other Mikawaya Brand products besides this specific lot of Chocolate Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream are affected by this voluntary recall.

Customers who have purchased the recalled product are advised not to consume the product and return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund. Customers with questions may contact Mikawaya at (323) 587-5504 (Monday – Friday) between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
