Following their recall earlier this month of soft serve on the go ice cream and sorbet cups, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogene, Ice Cream House has now recalled all frozen products sold in grocery stores due to possible listeria contamination, the FDA has announced.

Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others 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.

The products being recalled were sold at the Ice Cream House in Brooklyn and through retail supermarkets in New York, New Jersey and Ohio.

This recall is related to the Soft Serve on the go cups which had been previously recalled by Real Kosher Ice Cream, Inc where two cases of illnesses have been reported in this outbreak in two states (NY and PA.) Both individuals were hospitalized but no deaths have been reported to date. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the products as the investigation is ongoing.

Products involved in the recall should be discarded or returned to the original point of purchase for a full refund or replacement, the FDA stated.

Ice Cream has a long shelf life and may still be in the freezers of consumers. Consumers should check their freezers and throw away the recalled ice cream products or return it to the place of purchase.

If you have questions or concerns, you may emaiI or call 845-445-7644 Monday through Thursday 9-5.

Ice Cream House is managed by Klein’s Kosher Ice Cream.
