Jeni’s Spendid Ice Creams Stops Production After More Listeria Discovered

Jeni’s Spendid Ice Cream has once again stopped the production of all of its products after listeria, a life threatening bacteria, was found at one of the company’s facility in Ohio. Although the ice cream had not been contaminated, the company still chose to stop production.

Jeni’s previously recalled all of its products, destroyed its stock, and closed all 20 of its stores for a listeria outbreak a few weeks ago. The company discovered the listeria again in the facility after reopening and producing ice cream on May 13. CEO, John Lowe felt confident that no contaminated product left the facility. The company had to close down the shops temporarily due to the fact that the kitchen did not have enough products to keep them stocked. It has also halted shipping its products to retail stores and individuals across the country.

The company is now investigating how the listeria reappeared in the facility. The last contamination came from a machine that loaded the ice cream into pint sized containers. The company then cleaned, disassembled and implemented testing of the machines and products every day.

Jeni’s is not the only company that has had issues with listeria this year. Blue Bell Creameries was crippled after listeria contaminated its plants. It has not removed all of its products from stores for the first time ever. There have been 10 illnesses and three deaths linked to the contaminated Blue Bell products. There have, however, been no illnesses linked to Jeni’s recall.

Due to the fact that each product has been swabbed and tested before it left the facility, Jeni’s is confident that no products sold or consumed in the past few weeks were contaminated.
