Ice Cream Nationwide Recall

Posted on August 8, 2016 by


Beyond Better Foods, LLC is recalling select cases from a single production run of Enlightened brand Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip ice cream because they may have been packaged in Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream containers and thus contain undeclared peanuts.

The affected product was distributed nationwide in retail stores. Beyond Better Foods is taking immediate steps to recall all affected product.

This recall is the result of mislabeled product. Specifically, portions of one lot of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip ice cream was mistakenly filled in pint sized Enlightened brand Mint Chocolate Chip pint containers, and capped with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip labeled lids. These packages have a base container labeled “Mint Chocolate Chip,” a lid labeled “Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip” and are filled with Peanut Butter Chocolate chip ice cream. The opaque container reveals tan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip ice cream inside — not light green Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. All affected products have a “best by” date of November 18, 2017.

Customers who have purchased mislabeled Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip ice cream in an Enlightened brand Mint Chocolate Chip container are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Questions may be directed to 1-800-819-2998 Monday-Friday between 9AM and 5PM Eastern Time.

Investigation regarding the source of this mislabeling is ongoing, though it is believed to be an isolated incident.

No illnesses have been reported related to this recall.
