Made Ice Cream Bars Recalled Over Listeria Fears

No illnesses have been reported to date, according to the FDA, but testing showed positive results for listeria after October 31.

On Tuesday, the company expanded the recall to include all products made at its Dunkirk, New York, plant in 2017.

Fieldbrook Foods Corporation has issued a voluntary recall of 320 cases of the Meijer Purple Cow brand Orange Cream Bars due to the possibility that the product may be contaminated with Lysteria.

The products are also sold under the Sundae Shoppe brand at Aldi stores and Party Treat brand at Dollar Tree stores. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. All of the recalled bars were produced in 2017, and most have best-by dates in 2018.

Listeria monocytogenes is a unsafe bacteria that primarily affects pregnant women, newborns, older adults and those with weakened immune systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The contamination was found during routine testing and no illnesses have been reported. The expansion of the recall is out of precaution for consumer health and food safety after a few additional samples tested positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

Consumers who bought the affected products should return them to the store for a full refund. Anyone with questions may call Fieldbrook at 800-333-0805, ext.
