Nestle recalls some drumstick ice cream cones

- Glendale-based Nestle USA, Inc. is recalling some of its drumstick ice cream cones, due to a possible health risk.

The voluntary recall includes the company's 16-count variety pack and 24-count vanilla pack (with cones marked for individual sale) that were manufactured in Bakersfield and distributed nationally, Nestle announced in a
news release. No other sizes or varieties of the drumsticks are affected by the recall.

Nestle officials said they received positive test results for listeria monocytogenes (LM) from equipment contact surfaces on an area of the production line, but there have been no positive test results for LM present in the cones
themselves.

No illnesses have been reported to date; company officials said they are initiating the recall as a precautionary action.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high
fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Consumers who may have purchased the recalled drumsticks should not consume them, company represenatives said. The products should be returned to the place of purchase, or contact Nestle Consumer Services for replacement.

Distinct product identification codes are found on the back of the packages and on the individually marked vanilla cones from the 24 count pack, and recalled product codes are listed online at NestleUSA.com and
Drumstick.com.

Nestle customer support representatives are available 24-hours a day at 1-800-681-1676.
