Nestlé recalled its Drumstick ice cream cones after a factory tested positive for listeria



Nestlé has launched a voluntary recall of its Drumstick ice cream cones after one of its California factories tested positive for Listeria.

So far, no one has reported any illnesses and none of the Drumstick products have tested positive for Listeria, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

The company said in a statement that equipment on a production line at its facility in Bakersfield, California, tested positive. 

The Nestlé recall includes the Drumstick 16 count variety pack and the 24 count vanilla pack. 

The product identification codes are available on the FDA's website. 

The company said consumers who purchased the ice cream cones should not eat them, but should instead return it to the store. 


Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weak immune systems. 

Symptoms can include high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths for pregnant women.
