Glendale, Calif. (CBS) – An ice cream product is being recalled because it could be contaminated with a potentially deadly bacteria.

Nestle is recalling certain varieties of its famous Drumstick ice cream treats over Listeria fears. According to the FDA, equipment used to produce the ice cream tested positive for the bacteria.

The recall affects the 16 count Variety Pack and the 24 count Vanilla Pack with best before dates in June 2017.

Listeria can sometimes be fatal to young children and the elderly, and can make healthy people sick. There have not been any illnesses reported in connection with the recall yet.


Nestle says this is not related to the Listeria recall for Blue Bell ice cream.

Anyone who bought the recalled ice cream should bring it back to the store, Nestle says.

Consumers who may have purchased the product listed above are encouraged not to consume it, but instead should return it to the place of purchase or contact Nestlé Consumer Services for replacement. Please call or text 1-800-681-1676 or email News about this recall also can be found on and
