Utica’s Velvet Ice Cream recalls all products due to possible Listeria risk

Local News

UTICA, Ohio (WCMH) — Utica-based Velvet Ice Cream announced a voluntary recall of all its ice cream and sherbet — nearly 100 different products — made on or after March 24 for a possible Listeria risk.

In a press release, the company said no illnesses or injuries have been reported from the products.

The Listeria risk was identified during routine testing at the company, Velvet said in the press release.

The products in question were distributed in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginal through drug stores, convenience stores, and supermarkets, and include various sizes and containers.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. 

The 96 products sold in stores on or after March 24 contain the following product codes, which can be found on the bottom or on the side of the containers:
