Along with the massive Blue Bell recall, another ice cream retailer has also joined the list. On Thursday, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams based out of Columbus, Ohio has closed its doors and recalled all of its products. Furthermore, the recall includes the following:
• All types of ice cream
• All frozen yogurts
• All sorbets
The recall was prompted when a pint of Jeni's ice cream tested positive for listeria. Luckily no illnesses have yet been reported in connection with the listeria contamination at the company but they are recalling all products to ensure consumer safety.
Jeni's ice cream has 21 stores overall in Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, and California. Likewise, Jeni's ice cream is also sold at grocery stores and retailers throughout the U.S. This news comes off the heels of a huge recall by another ice cream giant, Blue Bell. In conjunction with the Blue Bell recall, over ten people throughout four different states became sick after eating listeria laced ice cream. Three people from Kansas died after eating the Blue Bell ice cream as well, and all products in 23 states were recalled for safety.
Symptoms of listeria vary from person to person but can include the following: nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, high fever, and headache. Those most at risk of developing serious complications from listeria poisoning are those who are pregnant, very young, elderly, or those with compromised immune systems.
