After two Seattle area men contracted Listeria, Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream issued a recall followed by Molly Moon’s, Pink’s Ice Cream and Grove. Now Full Tilt Ice Cream of Seattle, Washington is recalling all Dairy Based Ice Cream flavors (except the non-dairy frozen desserts), sold under brand Full Tilt.
The Full Tilt dairy base ice cream products distributed in Oregon and Washington through grocery stores and retail scoop shops.
The ice cream was sold in 16oz paper containers with a 7 digit code ending in 14x (ie: 0219142), as well as 1.5 gallon and 3 gallon plastic gallon tubs produced before 12/19/2014.
These dairy base ice cream products contain ice cream base produced and recalled by Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream, Inc. as an ingredient.
I wonder how many consumers knew that Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream made the ingredients for their favorite ice creams? I wonder is the retailer/resellers knew of the ongoing and past health violations that likely caused the outbreak?
Listeria monocytogenes is 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.
