According to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream CEO John Lowe they have found Listeria in their ice cream for the second time. They have halted production until the source of the infection is found.
Their Ice cream does not leave the plant until trust results are back to prove that the ice cream is listeria free. Any ice cream in the market or at their scoop shops is safe to eat, They are closing their scoop shops until they are back in production.
John Lowe said “While we would most certainly prefer that Listeria never enter our facility, we do take solace in the fact that our protocols and testing have worked: we found the Listeria before it got into ice cream we served. This finding and our ceasing of production enables us the opportunity to prevent contamination and continue to ensure the safety of our customers.”
