Nestlé reported a positive Listeria test on equipment surfaces at a facility in Bakersfield, California. The company said no Drumsticks tested positive for Listeria and they were released to the market inadvertently.

The recall includes the 16-count Variety Pack and 24-count Vanilla Pack (with cones marked for individual sale) of 4.6-ounce Drumstick ice cream cones with “Best By” dates from June 2 to June 19, 2017.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause serious infections in people and animals, including cows, which is why unpasteurized dairy products are often contaminated.

It survives freezing and likes to grow in cold, wet environments, which makes it hard to eradicate from dairy processing facilities.

Infections with Listeria are rare but serious. It likes to invade the bloodstream and often causes sepsis or meningitis. Pregnant women can suffer a miscarriage or stillbirth.

The symptoms can take up to 70 days to appear, and may include high fever, severe headache, muscle stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
