The recall was initiated after a sampling by the FDA revealed Listeria monocytogenes on “processing equipment” at Royal Ice Cream’s manufacturing facility. The Royal Ice Cream Company didn’t stop at issuing their recall though. They’re also “holding future product and testing before releasing distribution of the products” while they and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration conduct their investigation.

Consumers that purchased any of the above recalled products are urged to return them to their retailer for a refund. If you have questions about the recall, you can reach The Royal Ice Cream Company at 1-860-649-5358.
