59 Million Pounds of Ice Cream Bars Recalled for Listeria Risk

In January 2018, Fieldbrook Foods Corp. voluntarily recalled about 59 million pounds of orange-cream bars and chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars after several random samples tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause deadly food poisoning infections. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the ice cream recall.

Ice Cream Tests Positive for Listeria

There is evidence of Listeria contamination dating back to October 2017. The problem was noted after several random samples tested positive for Listeria during routine testing. The recall was expanded after a few more samples tested positive for Listeria. As a precaution, Fieldbrook Foods recalled all orange-cream bars and chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars manufactured in 2017.

What Should I Do?

Consumers who bought these ice cream products should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1 (800) 333-0805 (x2270).

Symptoms of Listeria Food Poisoning

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections — especially in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy people may experience symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women, but pregnant women may show few symptoms.
