Ice Cream Sold Online Recalled for Possible Listeria Contamination
An ice cream sold online to customers in New Hampshire and Massachusetts is being recalled for possible listeria contamination.
Life Raft Treats is expanding their initial recall of their Not Fried Chicken 64 oz bucket, Not Fried Chicken 2.5 oz bar, and Life Is Peachy six-count box ice cream products to include the "best by" dates up to and including "AUG 08282024."
The products were purchased online via Goldbelly.com.
No illnesses have have been reported. The product can be returned to Life Raft. Questions can be directed to the company at 843-695-9806 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The recall was expanded when Life Raft was notified by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) that additional products needed to be included to the initial September 6 recall. Life Raft added the Life Is Peachy products to the list because they were manufactured in the same room.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that 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, a Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
