Great Feeling Foods, LLC of Portland, OR has issued a voluntary recall of all Groove Gluten-free Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches produced between May 16, 2014 and December 20, 2014. These products contain custard ice cream base produced and recalled by Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream, Inc. as an ingredient. This custard ice cream base has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Groove Gluten-free Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches were distributed to and sold in various retail outlets in Western and Central Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The products are sold in 3 fl. oz. single packs and 6 fl. oz. 2-packs and labeled as Groove. The packages have “Best By” dates located on the bottom of the package with lot codes printed above the “Best By” dates.
