Ben & Jerry’s pulled Moo-phoria Peanut Butter Cookie Dough from shelves due to ‘undeclared peanuts’
Ice cream giant Ben & Jerry’s has been forced to pull one of its popular flavors from shelves due to ‘undeclared peanuts’. Moo-phoria Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Ice Cream, which includes peanut butter and cookie dough pieces, was found with the wrong lid in the packaging, putting people with peanut allergies at risk.
According to the Food Standards Agency, a batch has now been pulled from Sainsbury’s shelves because the Salted Caramel Brownie lid covered the jars instead. This meant that he did not state that there were peanuts in the product on the lid.
Customers with peanut allergies were therefore at risk if they accidentally purchased the item. Ben & Jerry’s recalled the product and also issued a point-of-sale advisory to its customers.
