Over 40 Brands of Ice Cream Bars Sold Across the Country Recalled for Listeria

Voluntary recalls occur more often than you might think in various regions of the country, but since 2018, we've seen an increasing number of nationwide recalls. From frozen biscuits to a deadly outbreak of E.coli that's reportedly linked to romaine lettuce. The recalls that are the most worrisome are the ones that include items you'd feed your family without thinking twice. That's why this recall that was potentialy contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes is a must-read for families across the country.

It's time to check your freezers if you've recently purchased any ice cream treats because Fieldbrook Foods Corporation issued a voluntary recall of all orange cream bars and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were made in 2017 on the Hoyer 1 Line at the Dunkirk, NY plant of the company.
