LAKELAND (CBSMiami) – Publix has recalled all of it’s Premium Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream.
The recall was issued after Aspen Hills, the supplier of the cookie dough, notified the supermarket chain that some their product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The ice cream was sold at Publix stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina with a UPC of 000-41415-03843, and a sell by date of May 27 2017, which is printed on the bottom of the half gallon container.
“To date, there have been no reported cases of illness. Consumers who have purchased the product in question may return the product to their local store for a full refund,” said Maria Brous, Publix community relations director.
Listeria can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly and those 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.
On Tuesday, October 10th, Blue Bell recalled all of its cookie dough ice cream products because it too used Aspen Hills as the supplier of the dough.
