article imageFDA finds Listeria in ice cream plant — recall details incomplete

By Karen Graham     Nov 3, 2016 in Food
Anaheim - Anaheim, California-based AC Creamery Inc. is recalling its 16-ounce packages of "Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream" because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Another company's brand is also being recalled.
The FDA recall notice, dated November 2, 2016, states that the recalled “Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream" were distributed nationwide in retail stores.
The recalled ice cream was also distributed at events such as; Florida Food & Lodging Show, Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture and California State University Pilipino American Student Association (CSUF PASA) Friendship Games.
The product comes in a 16 ounce paper cup marked with an expiration date of Mar 06, 2018 stamped on the bottom. As of today, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled products.
The recall was prompted after FDA inspectors found samples of ice cream positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the contract manufacturer’s, Dr. Bob’s of Upland, LLC, facility. The FDA found samples of another company's ice cream also tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, reports Food Safety News.
The finding by the FDA led the contract manufacturer, Dr. Bob's of Upland, LLC, to recall all ice cream products made this year. However, as of Thursday at 10:00 a.m. EDT, neither the FDA nor Dr. Bob’s had posted any recall information.
According to the FDA recall notice, "Consumers who have purchased 16-ounce packages of ‘Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream’ are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 714-871-9951.”
As of this time, information regarding the other ice cream company or its brand is unknown. This is concerning because Dr. Bob's of Upland, LLC has recalled all the ice cream produced at its plant this year.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Report any symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, to your health professional if you think you have become ill after eating ice cream.
