Fieldbrook Foods Corp. first announced a limited recall of products last week, including Purple Cow Orange Cream Bars sold at Meijer stores that had a "best by" date of November 20, 2018.
An ice cream manufacturer has voluntarily recalled two of its products nationwide.
The voluntary recall now includes Kroger brand orange cream bars and chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars sold at Kroger stores.
Short-term symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but the illness can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Both products might be contaminated with Listeria. You can see all of the stores where these products were sold, along with the brand name of the recalled products, at the FDA web site.

The "best buy" dates on the ice cream packages are January 1st, 2018, to December 31st, 2018.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem, but listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogenic bacteria, may not appear for 70 days.
The company has suspended production and distribution of all products produced on the production line in question and said it is cooperating with the FDA to investigate the source of the problem.
You can get a full refund if you bought any of these products.
