Announcement

AC Creamery Inc. of Anaheim, CA, is recalling its 16 ounce packages of "Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream" because they have the potential to 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. Although 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.

The recalled “Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream" were distributed nationwide in retail stores and events such as; Florida Food & Lodging Show, Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture and California State University Pilipino American Student Association (CSUF PASA) Friendship Games

The product comes in a 16 ounce, paper cup marked with an expiration date of Mar 06, 2018 stamped on the bottom.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found samples positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the contract manufacturer’s, Dr. Bob’s of Upland, LLC, facility, and in finished product of another company’s brand, leading the contract manufacturer to recall all ice cream products produced this year.

Consumers who have purchased 16 ounce packages of "Manila Sky Purple Yumm Ice Cream" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-714-871-9951, Mondays-Fridays from 9AM -5PM Pacific Time.
