Nestle Recall: Drumsticks

SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

Nestle USA Inc. has initiated a recall of Nestle Drumstick Club 16-count Variety Pack and 24-count Vanilla pack. The recall is due to positive findings of Listeria monocytogenes on equipment contact surfaces. There have been no positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes in the Drumstick products themselves and no illnesses have been reported to date.

When the organism Listeria monocytogenes contaminates food and is consumed, a serious infection of Listeriosis is possible. Healthy individuals infected with Listeria may experience short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. However, persons with underlying medical conditions, children, elderly and pregnant women are at a higher risk of becoming infected and can lead to more severe symptoms.

The product identification codes can be found on the back of the packages. The two products recalled have distinct UPC codes, “best before” dates, and production codes. For a full list of the recalled items, visit the FDA website at: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm524634.htm.

Customers or consumers are encouraged not to consume the affected products and return them to the place of purchase or contact Nestle Consumer Services for replacement.
