Working Cow Homemade, Inc. Recalls Product Because of Possible Health Risk

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) announced that Working Cow Homemade Ice Cream, Inc. of St. Petersburg, FL recalled No Sugar Added Vanilla and No Sugar Added Chocolate ice cream manufactured in three-gallon tubs during the month of May 2018, due to Listeria monocytogenes. Working Cow customers include ice cream parlors, independent living facilities and restaurants throughout the state of Florida. Working Cow is working with 152 retail customers to recall the potentially affected products. The reason for the recall is due to a recent consumer case in Florida which has been linked to a strain of Listeria monocytogenes found to be present at the Working Cow manufacturing facility during environmental sampling in 2017. Although subsequent environmental sampling has yet to yield positive test results, investigations are ongoing to ensure root cause has been properly addressed. No other illnesses have been reported. @ https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm622688.htm?utm_campaign=Working%20Cow%20Homemade%2C%20Inc.%20Recalls%20Product%20Because%20of%20Possible%20Health%20Risk&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm622688.htm?utm_campaign=Working%20Cow%20Homemade%2C%20Inc.%20Recalls%20Product%20Because%20of%20Possible%20Health%20Risk&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
Working Cow Homemade, Inc. Recalls Product Because of Possible Health Risk

Working Cow Homemade Ice Cream, Inc. of St. Petersburg, FL is conducting a voluntary recall of No Sugar Added Vanilla and No Sugar Added Chocolate ice cream manufactured in three-gallon tubs during the month of May 2018. The recall is being conducted due to a potential contamination with 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 monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
