Massive Recall Issued For Ice Cream Bars Sold in The Carolinas Due To Listeria


A major recall has just been issued for two kinds of ice cream products sold in BI-LO, BJ’s, Dollar Tree, Fred Meyer, Kroger, and Winn Dixie.

The recall is for Southern Home Orange Cream Bars (UPC Code 6078801142) and Southern Home Arctic Ice Cream Bars (UPC Code 60788001147), with “best by” dates from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

According to the FDA, “both products are being recalled due to the possibility that they may 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.”

All of the ice cream products, regardless of the “best by” date, should be thrown away or returned to the store they were purchased for a full refund.

If you have any questions about the recalled products, please call the Southeastern Grocers Customer Call Center at (866) 946-6349, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST, and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.
