Before ordering ice cream at a restaurant or ice cream parlor in Florida, consumers might want to ask where the establishment gets its ice cream. Friday, Working Cow Homemade Ice Cream recalled its No Sugar Vanilla and No Sugar Chocolate flavors on listeria concerns.

The St. Petersburg company supplies ice cream to 152 ice cream parlors, restaurants and independent living facilities in Florida. The ice cream being recalled was made in May.

According to the company-written, FDA-posted recall notice, Working Cow learned form the FDA that the listeria that sickened someone in Florida recently matched the strain found in Working Cow’s facility in 2017. Later sampling, Working Cow says, came back negative for listeria, but “investigations are ongoing to ensure root cause has been properly addressed.”

Anyone with questions can call Working Cow at 877-320-2269, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Eastern time.
