Royal Ice Cream Company Recall After Detecting Traces of listeria

An ice cream company has expanded a recall to include all of its products after testing revealed the presence of harmful bacteria.  The Royal Ice Cream Company Inc.’s voluntary recall, initiated earlier this month, includes “all products manufactured at the facility within expiry because they have the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

The affected products, packaged in pints, half gallons, sandwiches, and portion control slices, were sold in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New York, Louisiana, Florida, Texas, and New Hampshire.

The company said that sampling by the FDA “revealed the presence of listeria monocytogenes on processing equipment.”The company is “holding future product and testing before releasing the products” as it works with the FDA to uncover what caused the problem. There have been no reported illnesses or injuries regarding the recalled products.

Consumers can suffer from high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. listeria can result in “serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” the notice read. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
