Listeria scare prompts ice cream recall at local grocery stores

Listeria scare prompts ice cream recall at local grocery stores

A list of the recalled orange cream bars, chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars and the variety packes including the chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars were sold at different stores.

Fieldbrook Foods says that their orange cream and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were made in its Dunkirk, New York plant may be contaminated.

There were no illnesses reported in connection with the recall as of Tuesday, the FDA said. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths. "However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea". While it is uncommon and rarely affects healthy people, listeriosis can be a potentially fatal disease for those with weakened immune systems. In addition customers may call Giant Food Customer Service at 1-888-469-4426 for more information or visit the Giant website.

At Giant Eagle, the bars are sold under the Giant Eagle brand name.

Fieldbrook Foods is working with Hood and Kemps to make sure each of the retailers pull the affected products from shelves.

Health officials said routine testing revealed the presence of Listeria in some samples of the ice cream, and the recall was expanded after additional samples tested positive for the bacteria.

Fieldbrook Foods has suspended production and distribution of the products while it investigates the source of the contamination.

Throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
