According to a recall report posted on Local12.com, a popular vegan ice cream brand has initiated a product safety recall due to a dangerous anaphylaxis risk. The recall report states that Van Leeuwen is recalling its Oat Milk Brown Sugar Chunk ice cream due to hazardous, undisclosed ingredients. The recall was initiated after the company received a customer complaint. More than 2,000 pints of Oat Milk Brown Sugar Chunk ice cream were recalled due to tree nuts being used in the products but not listed as an ingredient. People who have an allergy to tree nuts could go into anaphylaxis and potentially die as a result. Anaphylactic shock can cause the airways to contract, making it difficult or impossible to breathe. Tree nuts include Brazil nuts, chestnuts, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pine nuts, and cashews.
The recalled ice cream product was sold in stores throughout the United States. The affected pints have lot number 21V194 and have a “Best By Date” of January 13, 2023.
People who are not allergic to tree nuts or ingredients in the ice cream can consume the desert. However, people who have a family member who is allergic to ingredients in the recalled ice cream product should return the ice cream product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
