Ice cream sold in Texas recalled due to potential listeria 

Ice cream products sold in Texas and eight other states have been recalled due to potential listeria contamination, according to a report from the United States Food and Drug Administration on February 12. 

The Royal Ice Cream Company issued a recall earlier this month, announcing that a few flavors of its ice cream might have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The organism can lead to 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. There have been no illnesses reported to date.

The product had been shipped to retail stores in nine states including Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Louisiana, Florida and Texas.
