It might be worth inspecting your carton of Ben & Jerry’s a little bit closer before you tuck in this weekend, as the company has recalled tubs of their Cookie Dough offering, which may contain small pieces of metal.

The company has issued a safety warning and has urged Irish customers affected to dispose of the ice cream and avoid tucking in.

Four batches of 500ml pots of Cookie Dough are believed to have been affected and Ben & Jerry’s have urged consumers to check the batch number on the inside lid before eating.

“Ben & Jerry’s internal quality assurance checks have shown that a limited number of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough 500ml products may contain small pieces of metal.

“The company has identified a specific production period during which [the ice cream] may have been affected and, as safety remains a top priority, Ben & Jerry’s is voluntarily recalling four batch codes of Cookie Dough 500ml.

“As a precaution, everyone with a 500ml tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough in their freezers should check the batch number of the bottom of their tub to make sure it’s not affected and, if it matches the batch numbers [affected], they should not eat the product and, instead, we ask them to discard the product in the usual household bin.”

The batch codes affected are L62110L011, L62111L011, L62112L011 AND L62113L011.

Irish customers affected have been offered a voucher for a replacement tub and can call 1800 946272 for more information.
