Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream Recalled Over Allergy Concerns

Nestle USA has recalled certain Haagen-Dazs ice creams because of a major packaging error — certain containers have ingredient listings that fail to note that the product contains peanuts, as well as mismatched labels. People with an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts are at risk for a severe or potentially life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The product affected: 14-ounce cartons labeled as Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with a UPC code of 74570-08400, and a lid labeled as Haagen-Dazs Peanut Butter. The best buy date and manufacturing code appear on the bottom of the carton: Best By 13May2015, and manufacturing code 24-5241335804 18D.

This ice cream has been distributed in the District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Nestle USA says that no other varieties of their products are affected, nor are any products distributed to Canada. The recall only pertains to about 10,000 packages distributed in the eastern United States on products with mismatched lids and cartons. The company is working with the Food and Drug Administration to implement the product recall.
