Ben & Jerry’s have placed nationwide newspaper adverts stating they’re recalling 500ml pots of Cookie Dough ice-cream due to a risk of metal pieces in the tubs.
Ben & Jerry’s internal quality assurance checks have shown that a limited number of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough 500ml products may contain small pieces of metal.
“The company has identified a specific production period during which [the ice cream] may have been affected and, as safety remains a top priority, Ben & Jerry’s is voluntarily recalling four batch codes of Cookie Dough 500ml.
“As a precaution, everyone with a 500ml tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough in their freezers should check the batch number of the bottom of their tub to make sure it’s not affected and, if it matches the batch numbers [affected], they should not eat the product and, instead, we ask them to discard the product in the usual household bin.”
