Agave Dream is recalling all vanilla, chocolate, cappuccino, chocolate chip, and lavender ice creams packaged in pint sized containers due to the potential that they could be contaminated with listeria.

The affected ice cream products were distributed across the United States to retail stores.

All of the recalled products were manufactured and packaged in a facility owned by a contract manufacturer, Dr. Bob's of Upland. Recalled products are Agave Dream ice creams packed in pints with a best buy date located at the bottom of the pint.

No illnesses related to this recall have been reported to date.

The recall is the result of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USDA) finding samples positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the contract manufacturer's facility and in finished product of another company's brand, leading the contract manufacturer to recall all ice cream products it produced for Agave Dream.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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.

Consumers who have purchased the identified Agave Dream ice cream products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions or concerns about this recall can contact the company at (866) 993-4438 or by email at agavedream@sbcglobal.net.
