NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – Life Raft Treats is expanding their recall of their "Not Fried Chicken" 64 oz bucket, "Not Fried Chicken" 2.5 oz bar UPC 8 60006 18210 6 and "Life Is Peachy" 6 count box ice cream products, to include the BEST BY DATES up to and including AUG 08282024 due to a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes.
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, a Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
On September 18, the firm was notified by South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control that it needed to include an additional lot of their "Not Fried Chicken" ice cream, which also tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The firm also decided to recall their "Life Is Peachy" ice cream treats because both products were manufactured in the same room.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
