Ben & Jerry's has issued a voluntary recall of some varieties that may inadvertently contain tree nuts.

The popular ice cream company is recalling some of their Coconut Seven Layer Bars and Chunky Monkey pints because they may contain nuts not declared on the ingredient or allergy information list. The contaminated products may pose a threat for a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to those with tree nut allergies.

The products have labels that say "Contains Walnuts" and "May contain other tree nuts" on the back of the pack. But they do not mention nuts like almonds, Brazil nuts and hazelnuts that have been found in some of the Seven Layer Bar bulk products and the Chunky Monkey pints.

The FDA said the products were made in America. The affected Chunky Monkey pints were distributed nationwide to retail stores. The Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk products were also distributed nationwide to wholesale and scoop shops.


No other varieties or container sizes of Ben & Jerry's products have been affected by the recall.

"The affected Ben & Jerry’s Coconut Seven Layer Bar bulk product is sold in a tub containing 2.4 gallons with a Consumer UPC of 076840104246 and best by date of SEP1520BJ4. The affected Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey pint is sold in a pint tub (473 mL) with a Consumer UPC of 076840100354 and best by dates of AUG2820BH2, AUG2920BH2, or AUG3020BH2," the FDA said in a statement.
