Full Tilt Ice Cream Recalled Due to Listeria Contamination

Full Tilt Ice Cream of Seattle, Washington is voluntarily recalling all Dairy Based Ice Cream flavors (except the non-dairy frozen desserts), sold under brand Full Tilt, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only 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 Full Tilt dairy base ice cream products distributed in Oregon and Washington through grocery stores and retail scoop shops.
The ice cream was sold in 16oz paper containers with a 7 digit code ending in 14x (ie: 0219142), as well as 1.5 gallon and 3 gallon plastic gallon tubs produced before 12/19/2014. The following table summarizes the affected products:

These dairy base ice cream products contain ice cream base produced and recalled by Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream, Inc. as an ingredient. Full Tilt has since performed a rigorous sanitation schedule to prevent further contamination.
Consumers who have purchased Full Tilt are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-206-963-5038 between 9am and 4pm PST Monday thru Friday
