Trader Joe’s announced the recall after being alerted by their supplier that Mikawaya Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream may contain peanuts.
Peanuts are not on the list of ingredients. People who are allergic to peanuts may develop a severe or life-threatening reaction if they eat it.
Mochi ice cream is a bite-sized dessert with a chocolate ice cream center that is covered in mochi, a Japanese-style pounded sticky rice.
The recalled boxes of chocolate mochi ice cream have lot code “LOT 090-17” printed on the top of the box and UPC 070934990609.
No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date. Trader Joe’s has destroyed and removed all of the remaining affected items.
Mochi ice cream is sold at Trader Joe’s grocery stores throughout the United States, but the company did not say how many boxes were recalled or the locations of stores where it was sold.
The company urges customers to return the product for a full refund:
If you purchased any Chocolate Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream with the affected code and have a peanut allergy, please do not eat it. We urge you to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund.”
If you have any questions, you may call Trader Joe’s Customer Relations at (626) 599-3817 Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
