Van Leeuwen Issues Voluntary Recall on Undeclared Walnuts in its Brown Sugar Chunk Ice Cream Pints

May 23, 2023

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream of Brooklyn, NY is voluntarily recalling 4,096 frozen 14-oz pints of its French ice cream "Brown Sugar Chunk" because it includes walnuts, an undeclared allergy. Walnut allergies can cause life-threatening reactions.

The 14-ounce reddish brown packaging has black text on the cup and lid. The recalled product has lot number 23P102 (Best By Date April 12, 2025) on the bottom. Van Leeuwen Ice Cream items with other lot markings, best by dates, or varieties are not recalled.

After a consumer complaint revealed that this lot of ice cream contained walnuts but was not labeled as such, the recall was voluntary. The cause of the product labeling error is being investigated.
