Mislabeled allergy warning prompts food recall

Posted under food allergy attorneys

The chocolate nougat crunch ice cream flavor by Ben & Jerry’s has been recalled after the company did not place an allergy advisory on the packaging. Only the flavor’s pint sizes are subject to the recall.

While the ice cream itself does not contain nuts, it was manufactured with a machine that processes tree nuts and peanuts. So far no illnesses have been reported, but people with severe peanut allergies could have a potential life-threatening reaction.

Consumers who have purchased the product should throw out the ice cream, cut out its UPC code on the container, and then call Ben & Jerry’s customer service to get a replacement coupon.

If you or someone you love has been affected by a serious allergic reaction and you believe another’s negligence may have played a role, contact the food allergy lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874.
