Ice cream company recalls all of its products due to the possibility of Listeria contamination.


Because the Royal Chip Ice Cream Company, Inc.’s ice cream recall has been broadened, consumers who have a craving for ice cream should take a quick look in their freezers to see whether they have any.

Following the initial recall announcement on Friday, February 4, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced in an updated recall notice on Saturday, February 12, that the company has expanded the recall to include all products manufactured at the facility due to the possibility of listeria contamination.


The increased recall now encompasses nine states and 14 brands, with all recalled products within their expiration date. There are no exceptions to this rule. All recalled items contain the production plant number CT121 or CT#12 on the label, are not past their expiration date, and are packaged in pints, half gallons, Sandwiches, and portion control slices.

FDA sampling revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in processing equipment at the Manchester factory, prompting the first phase of the ice cream recall to be implemented.

Infection with Listeria monocytogenes, which is caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, is a dangerous infection that is primarily contracted by the consumption of contaminated food.

Young children, fragile or older adults, pregnant women, and others with compromised immune systems are the most commonly affected by bacterial infections. This illness might result in a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, stomach discomfort, and diarrhea.

It has the potential to be lethal in some instances. Pregnant women who contract listeria can experience miscarriages or stillbirths as a result of the infection. At this time, no illnesses have been documented as a result of the recalled products or their use.

Any recalled products should be returned to its original place of purchase for a full refund, according to the recall’s instructions. Those with queries can reach the company at 860-649-5358, which is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

“Future product and testing will be conducted before distribution of the products may be resumed,” according to the FDA, as “the FDA and the company continue their investigation into what caused this incident.” The Royal Chip Ice Cream Company Inc.
