Nestlé USA Recalls Drumstick Ice Cream Due to Possible Health Risks

GLENDALE – Nestlé USA, Inc. said that they are voluntarily recalling their 16 and 24-count packs of Vanilla packs due to the discovery of Listeria monocytogenes (LM) found on the equipment contact surfaces where the products are made. Nestlé  officials said that no other product codes, sizes or varieties are affected by this recall. The recalled packages have 4.6 Fl. oz. cones that are marked for “easy individual sale and were manufactured in Bakersfield, California. These products were distributed throughout the United States.

Although there have been no positive results for LM in the cones themselves, out of an abundance of caution, the products have been voluntarily recalled. No illness has been reported to date as a result of the consumption of these products. Listeria monocytogenes manifest themselves in the form of a high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. This can cause serious; sometimes fatal, infections in young children, elderly people, or others with weakened immune systems. Listeria monocytogenes may also lead to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The product codes can be located on the back of the package and on the individually marked vanilla cones from the 24-packs. Two of the recalled packs carry distinct UPC codes, as well as a “best before” date and production code.

“The quality and safety of Nestlé products remain our number one priority,” said Nestle officials in a written statement.  “We apologize for any inconvenience this action represents for both our consumers and retail customers.”

Consumers who have this product should not consume them it but should return it to the place of purchase. Please call or text 1-800-681-1676 or email; representatives are available 24 hours per day, and 7 days a week.
