Enlightened Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream - recalled due to it may contain undeclared milk ingredients

Type: Recall
“Company name: Beyond Better Foods, LLC
Brand name: Enlightened
Product recalled: Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream
Reason of the recall: May contain undeclared milk ingredients
FDA Recall date: June 25, 2020
Recall details: Beyond Better Foods, LLC, is recalling select pints from a single production run of Enlightened brand Chocolate... See More Peanut Butter ice cream pints because they may have been packaged in Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter containers and thus contain undeclared milk ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. To date, no illnesses have been reported related to this recall.

The affected product was distributed nationwide in grocery stores. Beyond Better Foods is taking immediate steps to recall all affected products. This recall is the result of mislabeled product. Specifically, one lot of Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream was mistakenly filled in pint-sized Enlightened brand Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter pint containers. These packages have a base container labeled “Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter” and a lid labeled “Chocolate Peanut Butter” without a “Dairy-Free” callout. All affected products have a “best by” date of November 5, 2021, which is printed on the bottom of the container.

Customers who have purchased mislabeled Chocolate Peanut Butter pints with a “best by” date of 11/05/21 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 or to recallhotline@beyondbetterfoods.com Investigation regarding the source of this mislabeling is ongoing, though it is believed to be an isolated incident.
