Great Feeling Foods, LLC of Portland, Oregon announced a 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 that was made by Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream and recalled on December 23, 2014. The ice cream was recalled because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria is an extremely dangerous pathogen, and the recalled ice cream sandwiches should not be eaten.
The recalled 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.
No illnesses related to the consumption of Groove Gluten-free Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches have been reported to date. However, the incubation period for Listeria can be up to 70 days. This means someone could eat food contaminated with the bacteria and not show symptoms of a Listeria infection (listeriosis) for over a month.
