Recall of Ice Cream Bars for Possible Listeria Monocytogenes Contamination Expands

The recall of Fieldbrook Foods ice cream bars for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination has expanded to include another product. The previously announced voluntary recall of all orange cream bars and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were produced in 2017 on the company’s Hoyer 1 Line at its Dunkirk, NY plant (plant code 362677) also includes 28,751 cases of Sundae Shoppe Raspberry Cream Bars that were included with Orange Cream Bars in ALDI seasonal split-case purchases.

These cases were shipped between March and August 2017. You can see all of the stores where these products were sold, along with the brand name of the recalled products, at the FDA web site. The recalled products have production dates of January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 and a “best by” date of January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018. The Hood and Kemps products may show a “best by” date of July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. Fieldbrook Foods is working with each of these retailers to recall the affected products.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem, but listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogenic bacteria, may not appear for 70 days. Industry testing found the bacteria in a few ice cream bar samples.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a double bagged or otherwise sealed package, and put them in to a secure garbage can. You can also return them to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

Clean out your freezer with a mild bleach solution after you get rid of the ice cream bars. Freezing temperatures do not kill this bacteria.

If you ate these bars, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, muscle stiffness, diarrhea, and nausea. Pregnant women may be ill with what seems like a mild case of the flu, but listeriosis can cause stillbirth, miscarriage, premature labor, and infection in the newborn. If you get sick, see your doctor.
