Chicken Ice Cream Recalled in Washington & California
At least this didn't happen in the beginning of Summer, even though the beginning of Fall isn't any better. The last Ice Cream Recall happened in the beginning of August, and was linked to Real Kosher Ice Cream produced in Brooklyn, New York. The FDA is now warning about some novelty ice cream.
Over the weekend, FDA.gov, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have joined with Life Raft Treats in issuing a recall in 3 of their novelty ice cream products due to a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes.
ATTENTION: MAJOR KRAFT CHEESE RECALL!
Life Raft Treats issued a recall on their "Not Fried Chicken" and "Life Is Peachy" novelty ice cream products (multiple sizes, not just the ones shown below). The products were shipped to 40 states including Washington and California.
What To Do With Contaminated Product
Because ice cream can be kept in a freezer for a long period of time, it is recommended that if you possess this brand of ice cream, you throw it away or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Any restaurants that believe to have any of the recalled products should follow the FDA’s safe handling and cleaning advice to prevent any further spread of Listeria.
