Mikawaya Mochi Chocolate Ice Cream Recalled Due To Allergy Alert
Mikawaya is recalling their Mikawaya Brand Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream due to an allergy warning.
According to ABC 6, the ice cream has been removed from shelves nationwide because the product may contain peanuts. The product was sold at Trader Joe’s stores.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts may be in risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat the ice cream.
According to ABC 6, “Only products labeled with [the] UPC code of 070934990609 and lot number LOT 090-17 are included in this recall. The UPC code can be found on the back of the box and the lot number is printed on the top enclosure.”
The affected product was also sold in a paperboard box, containing 9.1oz (258g) of 6-1.5oz (43g) pieces. The recall comes after a report that the Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream contained the presence of peanut butter.
So far, Mikawaya has not received any reports of illness or allergic reactions from this product.
The product can be returned to any Trader Joe’s store for a full refund. Customers who wish to call Mikawaya, can contact the company at (323) 587-5504.
