Updated September 22 with recall expansion Life Raft Treats of North Charleston, SC has expanded an ice cream Listeria recall that includes two flavors, Life is Peachy, and Not Fried Chicken. Consumers who have purchased this ice cream should not eat it as Listeria can cause severe illness and death. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths.

The recall was expanded on September 19, to include an additional lot of Not Fried Chicken and included Life is Peachy because they were manufactured in the same room.
