Listeria Fears Hit More Ice Cream

Agave Dream is recalling its vanilla, chocolate, cappuccino, chocolate chip and lavender ice creams packaged in pint sized containers, due to the potential hazard of Listeria monocytogenes.

The ice cream was distributed across the United States through retail stores receiving products from KeHE Romeoville & Dallas warehouses, DPI NW, Americold, IWI Franklin Indiana warehouse, Jakes Finer Foods Houston Texas, Haddon House Richburg South Carolina & Medford New Jersey, Grocery Outlet California, UNFI- Auburn Washington, Dallas Texas & Ridgefield Washington.

All of the recalled products were manufactured and packaged in a facility owned by a contract manufacturer, Dr. Bob’s of Upland, LLC. Recalled products are Agave Dream ice creams packed in pints with “best buy” date located at the bottom of the pint.

The following flavors and “Best By” dates are being recalled:

Flavor UPC Dates
Vanilla 8 9934900201 7 7/4/17, 9/9/17,10/9/17, 12/12/17, 7/14/18 
Chocolate 8 9934900202 4 7/4/17, 8/5/17, 9/9/17, 10/9/17, 12/12/17, 12/24/17

Chocolate Chip 8 9934900302 1 8/5/17, 12/12/17
Lavender 8 9934900206 2 12/2/17

Thankfully, no illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall is the result of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration finding samples positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the contract manufacturer’s facility and in finished product of another company’s brand, leading the contract manufacturer to recall all ice cream products it produced for Agave Dream.

Consumers who have purchased the identified Agave Dream ice cream products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 866-993-4438 or agavedream@sbcglobal.net. Monday-Friday, 9am PST-5pm PST.

As stated in previous articles, this Listeria outbreak is not new. There is a growing list of products that have been affected by the monocytogenes, and that list seems to only be growing. Below is a list of our articles surrounding the topic:
