Some Batches of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Recalled for Undeclared Tree Nuts

Certain batches of Ben & Jerry's Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk and Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey pints may contain undeclared tree nuts that could put people with an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts at risk for a life-threatening allergic reaction.

The products, which have been recalled by Unilever, may contain tree nuts such as almonds, Brazil nuts and hazelnuts, but do not declare tree nuts on the ingredient list or allergy information list, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

The products do have a "Contains Walnuts" and a "May contain other tree nuts" on the label.

The recalled Ben & Jerry's Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk product is sold in a 2.4 gallon tub with a Consumer UPC of 076840104246 and best by date of SEP1520BJ4.

The recalled Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey pint is sold in a pint tub (473 mL) with a Consumer UPC of 076840100354 and best by dates of AUG2820BH2, AUG2920BH2, or AUG3020BH2.
