    I bought Ben & Jerry's Non-Dairy Cherry Garcia and Non-Dairy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough from my local Walmart on November 11, 2023, I decided to eat about a cup of it that evening for dessert. November 14, 2023 Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Complaint On November 11,... See More 2023 I ate the Ben & Jerry's dairy free Cherry Garcia and literally 5 minutes after I ate it, it gave me severe diarrhea, stomach cramps and nausea. I also googled if anyone else has had issues and a lot of people have. I contacted Ben & Jerry’s via their website and made my complaints. I'm still sick after 3 days later. I still have diarrhea, nausea and upset stomach with a decreased appetite. I believe that Ben & Jerry’s ice cream took out my good bacteria and replaced it with bad bacteria. I have an appointment with my primary care physician and I’ve been taking a probiotic and prebiotic and I’m still currently on a bland diet to help my stomach and colon get back to normal. I have reported my symptoms to the FDA for investigation and to make other consumers aware of the toxic and poisoning that Ben & Jerry’s put in their ice creams. I feel there should be a class action lawsuit against this company. I believe it to be the combo of Locust Bean Gum and Carrageenan they both can cause severe stomach and colon issues.

Ben & Jerry's Consumer Services Ben and Jerry's Homemade | 530 Community Drive, S. Burlington, VT 05043 My Response via email on November 13, 2023 Thank you for getting back to me so promptly. Carrageenan & Locust Bean Gum added ingredients can give people upset stomach, diarrhea & colon issues. These two ingredients being combined in your ice creams can cause internal damage to humans.  Carrageenan alone in some products can do this to people, but less likely severe. It's more severe when combined with another ingredient like Locust Bean Gum it increases the chances for stomach pain, upset, and diarrhea. I'm still a little sick, and I've been on a bland diet since it happened. My appetite has decreased, but I'm much better than I was.  Unfortunately, I didn't get the bottom of the chocolate chip cookie dough. I forgot, and I did get the bottom of the cherry garcia. My local store doesn't take back food returns. I threw them both in the trash. Please see website link there's numerous complaints on your ice creams. iwaspoisoned.com Ben & Jerry’s response on November 13, 2023 Hi, Thanks for getting in touch!

    I bought the topped mint cookie one. The next morning I had diarrhea and a stomach ache all day with nausea. For some reason only ben & Jerry’s ice cream is the only brand to make me sick like this. And I didn’t even eat half of it. I ate maybe 1/3. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Pain See Less

    After ordering Ben & Jerry's ice cream from Domino's Pizza on 08/02/23, we received our order and when we opened the jars, there was a layer of crystallized clear ice cream in one of the two jars, which is a sign that the product was thawed and... See More then refrozen. I had to throw it away. The other “seemed” normal so I ate it and since that evening I have had progressive symptoms until detecting salmonella from the ice cream I ate. The staff at Domino's Pizza in Charleroi apparently do not respect the cold chain of their goods. I will never order there again | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

    8/14 10pm I ate Ben & Jerry’s “The Tonight Dough” woke up around 4am violently ill, severe stomach cramping and the urge to go to the bathroom. I would pass gas here and there but I no longer could l sleep after 3 hour battle of trying... See More to sleep and rushing to the toilet. Eventually I was able to relieve my pain and go diarrhea after a solid 7 hour painful battle.
    My wife had a similar experience just a few months ago after she ate Ben & Jerry’s “The Tonight Dough” and that’s how we found this website questioning if we both experienced food poisoning.
