Nestlé recalls Drumstick Clubs for Listeria concerns

drumstick-recall

(WLNS) – Check your freezers if you’ve recently purchased Nestlé Drumstick Club 16 count Variety Pack and 24 count Vanilla Pack ice cream snacks.

The company is recalling the cones after receiving positive test results for Listeria on machines used in the production process.

There have been no positive test results for Listeria present in the Drumstick cones themselves.

Listeria can be especially serious and even fatal in young children, frail or elderly people and people with weakened immune systems.

Healthy people may see symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

There is the risk that Listeria infection could cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The Nestlé recall is limited to the Drumstick Club 16 Count Variety Pack and 24 count Vanilla Pack, made at the company’s Bakersfield, Calif. ice cream production facility.
