    Nestle USA, Inc., is recalling a slew of its popular Drumstick ice cream cone desserts over concerns about possible Listeria contamination, which can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children and the elderly.

    There have been no positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes in the Drumstick cones themselves, but the company did get positive results for the bacteria from equipment contact surfaces at a location on the production line, it said. The products impacted by the voluntary recall were put into national distribution inadvertently, according to Nestle.

    The Nestle recall is limited to the Drumstick Club 16 Count Variety Pack and 24 count Vanilla Pack, made at the company’s Bakersfield, California, ice cream production facility. 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.

    The following products are subject to recall:

    No illnesses have been reported to date, and the company initiated the recall as a precaution. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

    Young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to infection.

    Anyone who purchased the affected products can return them to the place of purchase or call Nestle's customer service for replacement at 1-800-681-1676.
