Ice cream bars sold at Giant Eagle, Aldi recalled

Ice cream bars sold at Giant Eagle, Aldi recalled

Fieldbrook Foods Corp. announced a recall, which prompted Giant to remove its store-brand orange cream bars and ice cream bars, according to a news release.

Fieldbrook Foods Corporation's orange cream bars, chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars, and variety packs that include chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars are on the list of effected products.

So far the FDA have not reported any illnesses connected to the ice cream.

Eating food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis.

There have been no reports of illness, according to the announcement. While it is uncommon and rarely affects healthy people, listeriosis can be a potentially fatal disease for those with weakened immune systems.

Fieldbrook Foods Corp. first announced a limited recall of products last week, including Purple Cow Orange Cream Bars sold at Meijer stores that had a "best by" date of November 20, 2018.

Giant Brand Orange Cream Bars, 12 count, UPC 68826703292 with best by dates between January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

At Giant Eagle, the bars are sold under the Giant Eagle brand name.

Most of the recalled products have have a production date of January 1-Dec. Hood and Kemps products may show a "best by" date of July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.

This is the packaging of some of the ice cream bars recalled over potential Listeria contamination.

Routine testing revealed the presence of the bacterium. There is no evidence of contamination before October 31, 2017, but the company has extended the recall back to January 2017 through an abundance of caution.

Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Fieldbrook Foods at 1-800-333-0805 x2270. All production on this line has been suspended while the company and the FDA investigate the issue.

Customers are asked to discard any unused portions of these products and bring their receipt to Giant for a full refund.
