Fieldbrook Foods recalls ice cream bars

Fieldbrook Foods Corporation has issued a voluntary recall of all orange cream bars and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were produced in 2017 on the company’s Hoyer 1 Line at its Dunkirk, New York plant . This is the only production line and the only Fieldbrook Foods plant (of 3) involved in this recall notice.

Both products are being recalled due to the possibility that they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short- term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recall effects the following products:

  • Giant Brand Orange Cream Bars, 12 count, UPC 68826703292 with best by dates between January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018
  • Giant Brand Arctic Bars, 12 count, UPC 68826703323 with best by dates between January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018
  • Polar Express Variety Pack, 30 count, UPC 7163261369 with best by dates between January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018
