Tubs of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream have been recalled over fears they may contain small pieces of metal.
Consumers who bought 500ml cartons of Cookie Dough are being asked not to eat the product and to throw it away.
Ben & Jerry’s issued a safety notice which said:
“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 batch codes 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 in the usual household bin.”
There are four batches thought to be affected, the codes are L62110L011, L62111L011, L62112L011 and L62113L011.
