The FDA identified the presence of Listeria monocytogenes when taking samples from Totally Cool, Inc. products. The company has since ceased production and distribution of the potentially affected products and is investigating and taking action to prevent future contamination.

Though no illnesses have been reported to date in connection to this recall, consuming Listeria can be dangerous. According to the Cleveland Clinic, eating a food contaminated with Listeria can cause fever, chills, headache, nausea, diarrhea, convulsions and more. It can also be life-threatening for people who are 65 years or older, people who are pregnant or people with compromised immune systems. If you recently ate something contaminated with Listeria and are experiencing potential symptoms, be sure to talk to your doctor immediately.
