Giant ice cream products were recalled

This is the packaging of some of the orange cream bars recalled over potential Listeria contamination

Ice cream bars sold by numerous grocers in Kentucky and in under different brand names have been recalled over a listeria contamination concern.

Listeria monocytogenes primarily affects pregnant women, newborns and those with weakened immune systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage.

A NY company whose products have been sold at stores across the country including Giant Eagle has issued a recall on ice cream bars that may contain a bacterium that can cause fatal infections. The "best by" dates for the recalled items span the entire year of 2018. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

The stores where these products were sold include ACME, ALDI, Amigo in Puerto Rico, Bi Lo, BJ's, Demoulas, Dillon, Dollar Tree, Econo in Puerto Rico, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Frys, Giant, Giant Eagle, Harveys, Jewel, King Soopers, Kroger, Meijer, Price Chopper, Price Rite, Ralphs, Safeway in DC/DE/FOL/MD/VA, Save-A-Lot, Shaws, Shoprite, Smart & Final, Smiths, Star, Stater, Stop N Shop, Tops, Various, Walmart in Puerto Rico only, Weis, and Winn Dixie.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced on Tuesday a voluntary recall of certain ice cream bars.
