Nestlé Issues Voluntary Recall Of Drumstick Ice Cream Over Listeria Concerns

Food maker Nestlé has initiated a voluntary recall of their Drumstick Clubs after they received positive test results for Listeria from equipment used to manufacture the cones.

Included in the recall are the Drumstick Club 16-count Variety Pack and the 24-count Vanilla Pack with cones marked for easy individual sale. The two pack sizes contain 4.6 fl.oz. cones and were manufactured in Bakersfield, California and distributed nationally.

So far, there have been no positive test results in the cones themselves and no illnesses have been reported, according to a statement from the company.

Listeria can cause serious and even deadly infections. It primarily affects the elderly, pregnant women, newborns and people with weak immune systems.

The product identification codes for the recalled ice cream can be found on the back of the packages and on the individually marked vanilla cones from the 24-count pack.

The two packs being recalled carry distinct UPC codes as well as a “best before” date and production code. To see a full list of packages included in the recall, click here.

The company says no other production codes, sizes or varieties of Nestle Drumstick products are affected.
