Nestlé USA Initiates Voluntary Recall of Drumsticks Club Due to Possible Health Risk

The Recalled Product May Be Contaminated By Listeria

October 13, 2016

Nestlé USA is initiating a voluntary recall of its Drumstick Club 16-count Variety Pack and 24-count Vanilla Pack due to a possible health risk.

The company received positive test results for listeria monocytogenes from equipment contact surfaces from a location on the production line where these products are made.

There have been no positive test results present in the Drumstick cones themselves. The products impacted by the voluntary recall were put into distribution inadvertently.

The affected products were distributed nationally.

Consumers can see the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) release for a full list of the production codes of the affected product.

No other production codes, sizes or varieties of Nestlé Drumstick products are affected by this recall.

No illnesses have been reported to date; the company is initiating this recall as a precautionary action to avoid any potential for consumer illness.

Listeria monocytogenes 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 may have purchased the product listed above should not consume it, but instead should return it to the place of purchase.

For further information, consumers can contact Nestlé Consumer Service at (800) 681-1676.
