Fieldbrook orange cream and ice cream bars are being voluntarily recalled due to possible contamination with listeria.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a voluntary recall from Fieldbrook Foods Corporation on all orange cream bars and chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars produced in 2017 on the Hoyer 1 line at its plant in Dunkirk, New York.
Products produced there may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, which cause serious or fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may suffer short-term effects such as high fever, headache, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, and pregnant women can suffer miscarriage or stillbirth.
The brands and merchants affected include ALDI, Dollar Tree, Kroger, Market Basket, Great Value (Walmart), Stoneridge and others listed on the FDA website. The bars were produced in 2017 with a “best by” date of Jan. 31 to Dec. 31, 2018.
No illnesses have been reported to date, according to the FDA, but testing showed positive results for listeria after Oct. 31. The company “through an abundance of caution” extended the recall for the entire year, according to the FDA.
Anyone who has purchased the products are asked to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Anyone with questions may call Fieldbrook at 800-333-0805, ext. 2270.
