Listeria monocytogenes found by federal inspectors in an unnamed brand of ice cream produced by Dr. Bob’s spurred the recall of AC Creamery branded ice cream Wednesday even though the pathogen had not been confirmed in it.
The Anaheim, CA-based AC Creamery Inc. posted its recall of Manila Sky Purple Yuma flavor ice cream with the Food and Drug Administration, citing the agency’s discovery of Listeria monocytogenes at the production facility of Dr. Bob’s of Upland LLC.
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration found samples positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the contract manufacturer’s, Dr. Bob’s of Upland LLC, facility, and in finished product of another company’s brand, leading the contract manufacturer to recall all ice cream products produced this year,” the AC Creamery recall notice states.
However, neither the FDA nor Dr. Bob’s had posted any recall information as of 10 p.m.
Although the recall notice for the Manila Sky Purple Yumm ice cream (above) states all ice cream products produced this year at the manufacturing facility where it was made have been recalled, neither FDA nor Dr. Bob’s of Upland LLC had posted any recall information as of Wednesday night for those other products.
EDT Wednesday for the year’s run of products referenced in the AC Creamery recall.
No illnesses had been reported in connection with AC Creamery’s Manila Sky Purple Yuma ice cream as of the posting of the recall notice. The ice cream is made with purple yams and has a cream cheese swirl.
The recalled 16-ounce packages of Manila Sky Purple Yuma ice cream were distributed nationwide to retail stores and events such as the Florida Food & Lodging Show and the Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture and California State University Pilipino American Student Association Friendship Games. The product comes is paper cups marked with an expiration date of “Mar 06, 2018” stamped on the bottom.
“Consumers who have purchased 16-ounce packages of ‘Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream’ are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund,” according to the recall notice. “Consumers with questions may contact the company at 714-871-9951.”
Anyone who has eaten any of the AC Creamery recalled ice cream and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical attention and alert their doctor to the possible exposure. Symptoms can take up to 70 days to develop.
Listeria monocytogenes 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.
