The company said the two flavors of ice cream bars are possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Consumers can return them to the store for a refund. Freezing temperatures do not kill this bacteria. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, muscle stiffness, diarrhea, and nausea. However, the agency said Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. If you get sick, see your doctor.
