Fieldbrook Foods Corp. Announces Nationwide Voluntary Recall of Select Ice Cream Novelty Products Due to Possible Health Risk

Fieldbrook Foods Corp. announced a voluntary nationwide recall of select ice cream novelty products containing granulated peanuts as the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov .

The FDA and other regulatory agencies have been investigating Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) due to a recent Salmonella outbreak associated with various peanut products. The FDA has advised that all products produced by PCA from its Blakely, Georgia facility are subject to recall, including granulated peanuts. Fieldbrook utilized granulated peanuts from PCA for the topping on various ice cream sundae cone products.

Fieldbrook is recalling the ice cream sundae cone products that contain recalled granulated peanuts from PCA. The company has not received any complaints of consumer illnesses associated with these products. The products listed below have been distributed nationwide to retail and food service distribution centers as well as Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

All lots of the following products are affected by the recall:
