Giant recalls orange cream bars, ice cream bars


The Rhode Island Department of Health is advising consumers that Fieldbrook Foods Corporation is recalling orange cream bars and chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars, announced through a press release.

The bars are sold at various stores under several names including Aldi Sundae Shoppe brand, Dollar Tree Party Treat brand, Giant Eagle brand, Save-A-Lot World's Fair brand, and Food Club brand. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

Only one line at one of its plants is affected, Fieldbrook Foods said. The "best by" dates for the recalled items span the entire year of 2018.

After all, Matt Nagy said at his introductory news conference that he will handle the playcalling for the Bears in 2018. He has 20 years of experience at the college level but will coach in the National Football League for the first time.

Listeria was discovered in a batch of orange cream bars that never made it to market and the larger recall was prompted, the Herald reported. Products under the Hood and Kemps labels show "best by" dates of July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. The listeria concerns came up after routine testing revealed the presence of the bacteria in a few ice cream samples. There is no evidence of any contamination prior to October 31, 2017, but the company has issued the recall back to January 1, 2017, through an abundance of caution and in full cooperation with the FDA. All production on this line has been suspended while the company and the FDA investigate the issue. Costumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-333-0805 x 2270.

Customers who have purchased the products should discard them and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.

"Fieldbrook Foods Corp. takes the safety and integrity of our products very seriously", a statement carried by the FDA says.
