article imageNestle recalls drumstick ice cream cones over Listeria fears

By Karen Graham     Oct 8, 2016 in Food
Glendale, California-based Nestle USA, Inc. is recalling some of its drumstick ice cream cones, because of a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
The voluntary recall includes its Nestlé Drumstick Club 16 count Variety Pack and 24 count Vanilla Pack (with cones marked for easy individual sale) that were manufactured in Bakersfield, Ca. and distributed nationwide, according to the Press-Enterprise.
According to the FDA's recall notice, published on October 7, 2016, no other product codes, sizes or varieties of Nestlé Drumstick products are affected by this recall.
In a news release, Nestle officials said they received positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes from equipment contact surfaces from an area of the production line where the recalled products were made.
Tests on the drumstick products themselves have not tested positive for L. monocytogenes. No illnesses have been reported to date, say company officials, but the recall was initiated as a precautionary measure.
The product identification codes can be found on the back of the packages and on the individually marked vanilla cones from the 24 count pack. The two packs being recalled carry distinct UPC codes, as well as a “best before” date and production code.

Listeria monocytogenescan 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.
