The Lake Forest Patch is reporting that there is a nationwide recall on several brands of ice cream due to a Listeria contamination.
“Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women, according to health experts.”
FDA samples tested positive for the bacteria – all of the contaminated samples were manufactured at the same plant in California – according to the FDA.
The list of ice cream companies involved in the recall are as follows:
- L.A. Creamery
- McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream
- Manila Sky Purple Yumm
Full details on the recall are located on the Patch website listed above.
