(WPRI) – Nestle USA is recalling two types of large economy packs of its Drumstick ice cream cone novelties, due to a possible health risk.
When they tested a production line, the company got positive tests for the Listeria monocytogenes. However, no Drumstick ice cream cones have tested positive for the bacterium, and no illnesses have been reported.

Listeria monocytogenes can lead to infections in young children and elderly people; at worst, a Listeria infection can be fatal.
The packages involved are Drumstick Club 16 count Variety Packs and 24 count Vanilla Packs (which includes cones marked for individual sale); all the cones are 4.6 fl. oz. and were made in Bakersfield, Calif.
If you have a pack of the ice cream treats, check to see if they’re listed among affected production codes at the FDA’s web site.
