Wells Enterprises, Inc. is voluntarily recalling two lots of Blue Bunny Hoppin' Holidoodle ice cream.

The affected product contains snickerdoodle cookie dough pieces recalled by the supplier, Aspen Hills, due to potential contamination with listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled lots feature codes of 60001 MM 19115 6228 or 60001 MM 19115 6229. The product is a seasonal holiday flavor with very limited geographic distribution in six states.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that 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 monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Consumers with product matching lot numbers and best if used by dates should return the products to the retail outlets where purchased for a full refund.

Anyone requiring more information should telephone Wells Enterprises, Inc. Consumer Affairs at (800) 331-0830.
