Stores in Canada, Guam, Arizona, Washington, Nevada and California had to recall products from Helados La Tapatia Inc. after listeria monocytogenes concerns reached them. Products include ice cream, fruit bars and/or cups, bolis and popsicles. They are marketed under the Helados la Tapatia and Icetations brand names.
The recall is done voluntarily, after a US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) inspection. Officials said that the specialists performing the inspection found traces of listeria monocytogenes on some of the food-processing equipment held at the Helados la Tapatia headquarters in Fresno, California.
For now, no infections associated with the products have been reported. Regulatory officials are backed up and helped by company officials to recall the products as soon as possible.
While listeria monocytogenes does not pose a serious threat to healthy adults, it can lead to severe complications in children and elderly people. The organism can cause infections in people who have their immune systems compromised due to age, poor nutrition or other underlying conditions.
Symptoms include migraines, nausea, diarrhea accompanied by abdominal pains, high fever and stiffness. Pregnant women infected with listeria risk miscarriages and stillbirths. If you notice any of these symptoms and after consuming Helados La Tapatia ice cream products, contact your doctor right away.
