Nestle Drumstick Recall – Listeria Lawsuit Investigation
Nestle recalled its Nestle Drumsticks due to the ice cream cones testing positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The affected products are the Nestle Drumstick Club count Variety Pack and 24 count Vanilla Pack with cones marked for easy individual sale.
The FDA said in the safety recall that no positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes were found in the Drumsticks yet, but equipment contact surfaces did test positive on the production line where the cones are made.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. However, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The recall is limited and the two packages of Nestle Drumsticks with distinct UPC codes and a “best before” date and production code. Please check your freezer to make sure none of your Nestle Drumsticks have the following:
