Listeria Outbreak Is Linked to Ice Cream, C.D.C. Says

  • July 04, 2022

Big Olaf’s ice cream is made by Amish craftsmen at a creamery near Pinecraft, which is a neighborhood in Sarasota, according to the company’s website.

Big Olaf began contacting retail locations on Friday to recommend against selling the product, said the C.D.C., which advised customers to discard any remaining products from the brand. A full recall has not been issued.

Big Olaf Creamery representatives were not immediately available for comment on Sunday.

Listeria bacteria causes an illness that can be fatal. About 1,600 people contract listeriosis in the United States each year from contaminated food.

Infections can cause flulike symptoms, including fever, muscle aches, vomiting and diarrhea, which generally begin roughly two weeks after ingesting food laced with the bacteria, though the onset can vary, the C.D.C. said. Severe cases can take months to develop, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
