The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Fudge Brownie Slices are subject to this recall:

  • Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie Slices, sold in 9 fluid ounce (266 mL) containers, three (3) individually wrapped Ice Cream Slices, with a best-by date code of AUG1218LT2 and a UPC of 076840657940.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the FDA, the Ice Cream Slices were distributed US nationwide through retail stores. The recall was initiated after receiving one (1) consumer complaint, in which it appears some Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Peanut Butter Cups Pint Slices were distributed in packaging that indicated the contents were, in fact, Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices. Due to this packaging error, the presence of Peanuts was not indicated.
