Peekaboo Mint Chocolate Chip with Hidden Spinach ice cream is being recalled for possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The product was sold at Target stores in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
The company said it was not aware that any illnesses had been reported at the time of the recall. However, symptoms of a Listeria infection can take as long as two months to develop and infections can cause serious illness and death. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. Symptoms of a Listeria infection include high fever, severe headache, muscle stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Ramar Foods of Pittsburg, CA issued the recall on May 14, 2020, after the problem was discovered through internal routine testing. The company believes that it was able to withdraw all but 33 containers of the product from the marketplace and has voluntarily suspended production of that product while it works with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put corrective measures in place.
The recalled product was sold in 14-ounce pr printed paper container with the UPC# 8685400001, and a “Best Before” date of 10/08/2021 printed on the bottom.
This is not the first time ice cream has been recalled for Listeria contamination. Because Listeria can survive in the freezer, there have been a number of ice cream Listeria recalls in recent years and, in 2015, Blue Bell ice cream was linked to a fatal outbreak. The Listeria lawyers at Pritzker Hageman represented clients in that outbreak and many others.
