About 4,481 cases of frozen desserts sold under the Planet Oat brand have been recalled after a customer discovered a potentially serious packaging problem.

Planet Oak Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert was packaged in a container of Planet Oat Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert. Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl contains peanut. Chocolate chip cookie dough does not, so the container does not list peanuts as an allergen inside. This is a problem for people with peanut allergies.

“People with a severe peanut allergy or sensitivity are at risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,” says the recall advisory written by HP Hood and released by the FDA.

What is being recalled are the 1 quart (16 ounce) containers of the above flavors, item # 70986 for Peanut Butter Swirl flavor and # 70990 for Chip Cookie Dough flavor of chocolate, best as of 12/17/22. This information should be on the bottom of the containers.

The pints went to 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands and St. Maarten.

If you have one of these recalled flavors and there’s absolutely no chance someone with a peanut allergy will eat it, keep it up.

But, if there’s even a slight chance of someone with a peanut allergy getting in on it, return it to the store of purchase for a full refund.

If you have a question, call Hood at 800-242-2423, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time.
