Hood Orange Cream Bars and Ice Cream Bars Recall

January 10, 2018


Fieldbrook Foods Corporation has issued a recall of all orange cream bars and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were produced in 2017 at its Dunkirk, NY plant. This is the only Fieldbrook Foods plant (of 3) involved in this recall notice. Both products are being recalled due to the possibility that they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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.


The recalled products have a production date of January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 and a “best by” date of July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.


If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund.
