NEW YORK (CBSMiami/AP) — People who are allergic to peanuts need to pay attention to a new recall from Nestle.
Nestle USA has recalled 10,000 cartons of Haagen-Dazs chocolate peanut butter ice cream because the packages are mislabeled.
The company says the lids of the ice cream are labeled correctly, but the list of ingredients describes chocolate chip ice cream and does not say that the package contains peanuts. That could create a hazard for people with peanut allergies.
The recall affects 14-ounce cartons of ice cream with a best-by date of May 13, 2015. The ice cream was made on May 13 and has been distributed in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington DC.
The affected products are 14-ounce cartons labeled as Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with a UPC of 74570-08400, and lid labeled as Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter. The best buy date and manufacturing code appear on the bottom of the carton: Best By date of 13May2015, Manufacturing code of 24-52 4133580418D.
Consumers with a peanut allergy are advised by Nestlé not to consume it. Consumers who have purchased the product (UPC 74570-08400 and Manufacturing code 24-52 4133580418D Best By 13May2015) can call 800-993-8924 or visit the website.
