(RxWiki News) Just days after Blue Bell Creameries announced a recall of all its products, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams recalled its products for the same reason — a possible risk of Listeria.
Jeni's announced Thursday that it would cease all sales and close all of its shops in addition to the recall of its products (including any product bearing the Jeni's brand name) until the cause of the health risk is determined and addressed.
Listeria is a bacteria that causes an often short-term infection marked by symptoms like headache, high fever, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea and stiffness. In the old and very young, Listeria can be fatal.
Jeni's noted in a press release that no illnesses tied to its products had been reported to date. A random sample taken by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture found Listeria, sparking the full recall.
Anyone who has purchased one of the affected products should dispose of it or return it to the store for a refund.
