Listeria monocytogenes Contamination of Ice Cream: a Rare Event That Occurred Twice in the Last Two Years

Thus, it was unusual for infections to occur from ice cream manufactured by Blue Bell Creameries of Brenham, Texas, in 2015, and it was even more unusual that a second ice cream manufacturer, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams based in Columbus, Ohio, isolated L.

Bagged salads 'pose salmonella risk,' say researchers
Conclusion This laboratory study principally demonstrates that salad leaf juice – released from salad leaves when they are damaged or broken – supports the growth of salmonella bacteria, even at fridge temperature. If leaves are contaminated with salmonella, this isn't removed by washing in water. The results don't show that all packaged salad leaves are contaminated with gut bacteria like salmonella. What they do show is that if the bags have been contaminated with gut bacteria, these bacteria will replicate, even in the fridge, and there's little you can do to remove them. The best thing to do is to throw t...

So far this year, 11 ice cream manufacturers have recalled products over concern that the dangerous Listeria monocytogenes bacterium, commonly known as listeria, may have contaminated the food. Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections called listeriosis in the young, elderly or those with a weakened immune system. Listeriosis can also cause pregnant women to have miscarriages or stillbirths, which seems like a particularly cruel risk for pregnant women craving a scoop or two.
