Nestlé USA, Inc. is voluntarily recalling its Nestlé Drumstick Club 16 count Variety Pack and 24 count Vanilla Pack, with cones marked for easy individual sale, due to a possible health risk.
The two pack sizes contain 4.6 fluid ounce cones and were manufactured in Bakersfield, Calif. and distributed nationally. The company received positive test results for Listeria. No illnesses have been reported. The company is initiating this recall out of an abundance of caution.
Listeria Monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in the young, frail, elderly or those with weakened immune systems.
The product identification codes can be found on the back of the packages and on the individually marked vanilla cones from the 24 count pack. The two packs being recalled carry distinct UPC codes, as well as a “best before” date and production code. A full list of the codes can be found on the Food and Drug Administration‘s website.
Consumers who may have purchased the product should return it or contact Nestlé Consumer Services for replacement.
