Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams Recalled for Listeria

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is voluntarily recalling all ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, and ice cream sandwiches in all flavors and containers because of possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The company is stopping sales and closing scoop shops until all products are safe.

jeni's-listeria-recallThe products were distributed in the U.S. to retail outlets, including food service accounts and grocery markets, and online. The recall includes all products with the “Jeni’s” brand name.

The contamination was discovered by random tests conducted by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. No illnesses have been reported to date, but listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogenic bacteria, can take up to 70 days to appear.

If you purchased any of these products, throw them away in a sealed container so animals and people can’t eat them. You can also return them to the place of purchase for a refund. Then clean out your freezer with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria bacteria can survive freezing. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling the product.

If you ate any Jeni’s ice cream, monitor yourself for the symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes food poisoning for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Pregnant women may suffer miscarriages or stillbirth, even though their illness is very mild. If you do get sick, see your doctor as soon as possible and tell her you ate this recalled product. Ask for a blood test for Listeria.
