Fans of delicious frozen treats are being warned to check their tubs of Ben & Jerry’s over fears they may contain dangerous shards of metal alongside scrumptious cookie dough chunks. 

Hundreds of Cookie Dough flavour tubs are feared to have been contaminated with metal filings and customers are being urged to check the base of 500 ml tubs for the batch number.


The tubs containing metal are believed to have batch codes: L6210L011, L6211Lo11, L62112L011 and L62113L011, The Mirror reports.

If it matches the batch numbers listed, they should not eat the product and instead discard it in their household bin.

Customers who believe they might have the affected tub of Cookie Dough 500 ml ice cream should call the folks at our customer careline on 0800 146252 for a replacement tub.
