    Ice Cream Brand Linked to Deadly Outbreak

    Published on

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended consumers to discard any ice cream from Big Olaf Creamery.

    The national public health office has discovered a connection between an ongoing incident of listeria and the eating of Big Olaf Creamery ice creams, according to a food safety notice issued on Saturday.

    The current outbreak has resulted in 22 hospitalizations, 23 instances of sickness, and one death, according to a CDC alert.

    Ten states, including Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island, have reported cases associated with the epidemic.

    “Consumers who have Big Olaf Creamery brand ice cream at home should throw away any remaining product,” according to the CDC.

    Citizens must thoroughly clean “any areas, containers, and serving utensils that may have touched Big Olaf ice cream products,” the agency said.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ordered establishments to avoid selling and serving Big Olaf ice cream items and to sanitize any equipment or area that may have come into contact with the product.

    The ice cream company from Sarasota, Florida was “voluntarily contacting retail outlets to recommend against selling their ice cream goods until further notice,” according to the report.

    Listeria is a severe infection caused by eating contaminated food with the listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

    According to the CDC’s data sheet on the disease, around 1,600 people develop listeria each year, and approximately 260 die from it.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    Listeria infection is “most likely” to cause illness and complications in pregnant women, newborns adults over 65 and people with weaker immune systems.

    Pregnant women might experience fever, fatigue and muscle aches after contracting listeria. The infection also can harm their unborn babies, leading to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery and life-threatening infections in the child. CONTINUE READING…
