The Fieldbrook Foods Corporation’s cream bar recall has expanded once again, to include more than 28,000 cases of Raspberry Cream Bars that were included with Orange Cream Bars in ALDI seasonal split-case purchases. The expanded recall adds to a previous recall of all orange cream bars and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were produced in 2017 on the company’s Hoyer 1 Line at its Dunkirk, New York plant. Bars manufactured at the other two Fieldbrook Foods plants are not affected.
The recall was initiated because there is a risk the cream bars may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals who become infected may have short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
To date, Fieldbrook Food has not received any reports of illness related to this recall.
A list of cream bar brands and merchants that carry the products can be found on the company’s press release. Anyone in possession of these cream bars should not consume them, and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The company said it is working to identify the cause of the problem and permanently fix it.
