Ice cream bars sold at Giant Eagle, other stores recalled

A New York-based food company's announcement has prompted Giant Eagle to issue a recall for several kinds of ice cream bars sold under the grocer's name.

They are the orange cream bars, chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars, and variety packs that include chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars.

Giant has recalled several products from its shelves because of possible Listeria contamination.

Bi-Lo said its recalled Southern Home Orange Cream Bar with UPC 6078801142 and Southern Home Arctic Ice Cream Bar with UPC 60788001147 were sold in SC stores. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths.

Symptoms of listeriosis include high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.

Vermont Is Really Close To Legalizing Marijuana
Eight other states have enacted laws legalizing and regulating marijuana for adult use, all through ballot initiatives. Despite vetoing a similar effort a year ago , Governor Smith has stated he would likely sign this renewed effort.

Listeria monocytogenes is a unsafe bacteria that primarily affects pregnant women, newborns, older adults and those with weakened immune systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Routine industry testing found the presence of Listeria monocytognees in a few ice cream bar samples.

Our families also consume these products and we are working tirelessly to identify the cause of the problem and permanently fix it so the orange cream and other types of ice cream bars made at Fieldbrook Foods will again have the complete confidence of our customers and consumers.

The consumer recall process uses purchase data and consumer telephone numbers housed in the Giant Eagle Advantage Card database to alert those households that purchased the affected product and have updated telephone contact information in the database.
