Batches of Nutella ice cream, barely released, recalled for a labeling problem

The distributor of U stores announces the recall of two batches of Nutella ice cream, recently released. According to Rappel Conso, a labeling anomaly that could present a risk for people suffering from allergies is the cause of this national recall.

The party was short-lived. Two batches of Nutella ice cream sold in U stores via the group’s cooperative are recalled. This product, eagerly awaited by fans of Ferrero brand ice creams and chocolates, is available in a 230 gram pot of three frozen layers made from hazelnuts and touches of Nutella. The government Rappel Conso website specifies that the list of allergens, which are numerous in this product, is not correctly indicated. An error which constitutes a risk for consumers suffering from allergies.

Available everywhere in France

These pots were marketed from May 20 to 23, 2024 in all points of sale supplied by the U cooperative, i.e. potentially 1,726 stores spread across the country. Ferrero indicates to RMC Conso that nearly 600 pots are affected by this recall, specifying that this lack of labeling has no impact on the quality of the product.

Persons in possession of this product should pay attention to the batch number to determine if it is affected. Two references are affected by the recall: GTIN 8000500425183, whose batch number begins with L071E32 (durability date September 2, 2025) and GTIN 8000500425183, whose batch number begins with L072E32 (durability date September 3, 2025).

A label in Italian and English

It was therefore a labeling error that triggered this recall, the presence of allergens being in fact mentioned in foreign languages ​​(Italian and English) and not in French.

“The following allergenic ingredients are not indicated in French: cream, milk, hazelnuts, soy. The allergens that may be present in trace amounts are not indicated in French: gluten, eggs, almonds, nuts, cashews, pecans, pistachios and macadamia nuts,” explains the supplier.

Consumers who wish to be informed of a possible compensation method can contact 08.00.55.35.53.

The recall procedure will end on Sunday July 28, 2024.
