People who will eat some Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices during a movie night at home or a reward to a long hard day might want to put the famous ice cream down first. The company is recalling all of its Fudge Brownie Pint Slices as it may have the wrong treats inside.

In an article published by Fox News, Ben & Jerry's parent company, Unilever, announced that the recall was issued after a customer said that they got the wrong type of ice cream they ordered. Once they opened a box of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices, they found Vanilla Peanut Butter Cups Pint Slices instead.

Currently, Unilever has yet to receive any reports of illness from the wrongly packaged Ben & Jerry's ice cream pack. However, they are recalling the product "out of an abundance of caution." In addition to their statement, Unilever said that the wrong Ben & Jerry's product might trigger peanut allergies for people who did not expect the package inside the ice cream.

The parent company of Ben & Jerry's also announced that they are going to offer replacement coupons for people who have purchased the affected product.
