Weight Watchers Dessert Recalled Due to Possible Listeria Contamination
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Weight Watchers frozen dessert is being voluntarily recalled due to possible Listeria
contamination. A positive test result for Listeria was reported by the
company that supplies the cookie dough that is included in the recalled
product “Smart One's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae.”
No illnesses have been reported at this time, but retailers across the
U.S should be wary after 100,000 cases of the dessert have been shipped.
Weight Watchers reported that this is a precautionary measure. Consumers
are urged to not eat this recalled product and return it to the store
for an exchange or a full refund.
According to the CDC, Listeriosis is listed as a serious infection which
is usually caused by ingesting food that is contaminated with Listeria
monocytogenes. This affects newborns, pregnant woman, the elderly and
adults with weakened immune systems. However, it can affect others who
are not necessarily in that group. Symptoms can range from muscle aches,
fever, stomach issues, headaches, stiff neck, and confusion. This is particularly
scary for pregnant women. A pregnant woman who is infected is at risk
of serious illness. Listeria can cause stillbirths, miscarriage, early
delivery or even infections of the newborn which can be life-threatening.
It is always necessary to follow company guidelines if you have purchased
a product that has been recalled.
