Ice cream recalled over listeria fears

Ice cream recalled over listeria fears

The FDA is issuing a massive recall of ice cream bars because of the threat of listeria.

The ice cream bars were sold under a variety of brand names and at a variety of merchants, including Kroger, ALDI, BJ's, Dollar Tree and Price Rite.

Fieldbrook Foods said its orange cream and chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars might have listeria contamination.

On Tuesday, the company expanded the recall to include all products made at its Dunkirk, New York, plant in 2017.

The bars were shipped between March and August 2017. Fieldbrook Foods is working with each of these retailers to recall the affected products. The disease can have more serious or fatal effects on the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, muscle stiffness, diarrhea, and nausea.

There have been no illnesses reported in connection to the ice cream bars.

The manufacturer says the expansion of the recall is out of precaution for consumer health and food safety after a few additional samples tested positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

You can get a full refund if you bought any of these products. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-333-0805, ext.
