Tubs of one of Ben & Jerry’s most popular ice creams have been recalled as they may contain small pieces of metal.
Some customers who have bought 500ml pots of Cookie Dough have been told not to eat the ice cream and instead throw it in the bin.
Four batches of the ice cream are thought to be affected, with customers asked to check the batch numbers to see if they need to take action.
An important safety notice was published in several national newspapers on Friday morning. It detailed information about the recall, which Ben & Jerry’s decided to do voluntarily.
It said: Ben & Jerry’s internal quality assurance checks have shown that a limited number of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough 500ml products may contain small pieces of metal.
The company has identified a specific production period during which [the ice cream] may have been affected and, as safety remains a top priority, Ben & Jerry’s is voluntarily recalling four batch codes of Cookie Dough 500ml.
As a precaution, everyone with a 500ml tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough in their freezers should check the batch number of the bottom of their tub to make sure it’s not affected and, if it matches the batch numbers [affected], they should not eat the product and, instead, we ask them to discard the product in the usual household bin.
The batch codes affected are L62110L011, L62111L011, L62112L011 AND L62113L011.
Customers who have to throw their ice cream away can call 0800 146 252 to find out how to receive a voucher for another pot.
