The Royal Ice Cream Company on Wednesday said it is recalling products in nine states because of the possibility they were contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause sometimes fatal illnesses in certain individuals.

All recalled products have the manufacturing plant number “CT121” or “CT#121,” according to the company, according to a bulletin posted Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The affected ice cream products were distributed in retail stores in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Louisiana, Florida, Texas, and New Hampshire, the bulletin said

The products include:

According to the bulletin, there have been no illnesses reported to date.

Listeria bacteria, medical officials say, can cause an infection that includes symptoms of diarrhea, achy muscles, fever, and nausea.

A severe form of the infection, known as listeriosis, or when the bacteria spreads to the nervous system, is fatal for about 20 percent of people who contract it, namely very young children, elderly people, and those with compromised immune systems.

Consumers who have purchased any of the potentially impacted ice cream products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.  Consumers with questions can contact the company at 860-649-5358.
