Ice Cream Sold in Iowa, Pizza Sold in Minnesota Recalled
Residents of Iowa and Minnesota are being advised to check their freezers for some products that have been recalled due to potentially dangerous issues.
In the Hawkeye State, it's ice cream treats.
In the North Star State, it's pizza.
South Carolina-based Life Raft Treats has expanded the recall of ice cream that might have exposed customers in 38 states, including Iowa, to listeria.
The recalled products include:
- Not Fried Chicken ice cream (64-ounce bucket)
- Not Fried Chicken ice cream bars
- Life Is Peachy Ice Cream treats
The products with a best-by date up to and including Aug. 28, 2024.
The recall came after South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control told Life Raft Treats that their Not Fried Chicken ice cream treat tested positive for listeria.
Listeria (Listeria monocytogenes) is a rare bacteria that is far deadlier than salmonella.
Consumers are being advised to return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund or to discard the products away from where animals can get to them.
