Related tags: Netherlands

Unilever is recalling four batches of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream due to potential metal contamination.

Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough 500ml ice cream 500ml with batch codes:​ L62110L011, L62111L011, L62112L011 and L62113L011 and best before date 01/2018 are affected.

Ice cream was produced in the Netherlands with raw material from the UK and was distributed in the Netherlands, Ireland and UK.

Unilever said internal quality assurance checks have shown some products could contain pieces of metal.

“The company has identified a specific production period during which Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough 500ml may have been affected, and as safety remains a top priority, Ben & Jerry’s is voluntarily recalling four batches of Cookie Dough 500ml…from sale.

“As a precaution, everyone with a 500ml tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough in their freezers at home should check the batch number on the bottom of their tub to make sure it’s not affected, and if it matches the batch numbers listed above, they should not eat the product and instead we ask them to discard the product…”

We have contacted Unilever to find out more information about this recall.
