Favorite Ice Cream Brand Recalled: Contaminated With Listeria; Do Not Eat, Health Officials Urge

October 01, 2018

Sad news for ice cream lovers. A fan-favorite brand has been pulled from supermarket shelves and everyone is unhappy about the recall.

The ice cream shop who produced and distributed the tasty treat has had to close up shop until further notice due to the state testing results. Listeria monocytogenes has been found in the ice cream and also found in the production plant.

Consumers are urged to check their freezers to make sure they do not have this dangerous recall in their home. Any of the company's ice cream that was purchased after February 20 of this year should be tossed in the trash or returned to the place of purchase.

Individuals who consume this product may have the following symptoms: fever, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea, according to the Mayo Clinic. Individuals with a weaker immune system may be at a higher risk of life-threatening complications.

Sadly, the recall has been expanded since its previous recall on September 4 that included all Reilly Craft Creamery ice cream produced since February 20.


The owner, Chris Reilly, announced in a statement that he would not re-open Reilly Crafty Creamery LLC, a posting read by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD), according to Food Safety News.



“The ice cream is packaged in paper pint cartons, and the product numbers are on the bottom of the container,” read the notice on the Michigan agriculture website, according to Food Safety News.


The recalled product has the lot code #022018-1 and was sold in one-pint containers. The following are the recalled flavors:

-House Made Honey Comb
-Mint Choc Chunk
-Choc Choc Chunk
-Sea Salt Caramel
-Hand-Steeped Coffee
-Single-Batch Strawberry
-Chocolate Deluxe (Vegan)
-Small-Batch Strawberry (Vegan)
-Butter Pecan
-Vanilla Bean

Stores that sold these products include Whole Foods, The Farmers hand, and Western Market.
