Orange, chocolate-covered ice cream bars recalled over listeria concerns

Fieldbrook Foods Corp. of Dunkirk, New York, has recalled several brands of orange and chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bars because of the possibility of listeria contamination, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced Tuesday.

The recalled orange and chocolate bars, along with variety packs that include the chocolate-coated bars, are sold under various brand names and at store chains that have locations in our area.

Brands affected by the recall, and the store chains that sell them, include Sundae Shoppe at ALDI, World's Fair at Save-A-Lot, Weis brand at Weis stores, Giant brand at Giant stores, Party Treat at Dollar Tree and Wellsely Farms at BJ's.

Giant Food Stores have recalled three products with certain UPC codes: 30-ounce Giant brand Arctic Bars and Orange Cream Bars, and the Polar Express Variety Pack. You can see the UPC codes of the products being recalled here.

Most of the recalled products have have a production date of Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2017, and a "best by" date of Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2018.
Products under the Hood and Kemp brands may have a "best by" date between July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019.

The FDA notice indicates consumers who have purchased these products should return them to the store at which they bought them for a full refund. Those with questions can call Fieldbrook Foods at 800-333-0805, extension 2270.

The recalled products were produced last year on one production line of the Dunkirk, New York, plant.

Routine testing showed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in a few ice cream bars from that line, the FDA recall notice says.

The notice says no illnesses have been reported, to date, in connection with the possible contamination.

According to federal food safety information found at foodsafety.gov, older adults, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems are at special risk for listeria-related illness.

The FDA cautions that the Listeria monocytogenes bacterium can cause listeriosis, a serious illness with symptoms including fever, muscle aches and severe gastrointestinal distress — and can even result in miscarriage or death.

A Jan. 3 recall notice by the FDA previously cautioned about possible listeria contamination in certain packages of Top’s Orange Cream Bars, sold in Tops stores in Pennsylvania and elsewhere in the Northeast, and Purple Cow Orange Cream Bars sold at Meijer stores in other states.
