An extensive, nationwide recall due to the risk of Listeria monocytogenes has been expanded to include more brands, such as Blue Bunny, Nestle, Nutrisystem and more.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, people with diabetes, 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 monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Several brands and varieties of ice cream products are being recalled. As of today, they include the following:
