BIG OLAF ICE CREAM LISTERIA INFECTIONS

On July 1, 2022, the FDA informed Big Olaf Creamery about an ongoing listeria outbreak investigation. Big Olaf Creamery immediately halted production and distribution of its products. The CDC reported that Big Olaf ice cream has been linked to 23 individuals who were infected across 10 states.

The FDA announced that there have been 22 hospitalizations, one death, and one fetal loss as a result of the listeria outbreak. Listeria monocytogenesis is an organism that can cause serious and fatal infections in the elderly, immunocompromised, and young children. Healthy individuals may still experience serious symptoms including abdominal pain and high fever. The infection itself has been known to cause miscarriages and sometimes stillbirths among pregnant women.

The FDA, CDC, Florida Department of Health, and  Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services are working on getting a handle on the recent listeria outbreak. All Big Olaf ice cream has been recalled and production and distribution of the ice cream has remained halted.
