Big outbreak Olaf Listeria Ice Cream: Which flavors were positive

State regulators found that samples of 16 of 17 ice cream flavors from the Big Olaf Creamery production facility in Sarasota County tested positive for listeria bacteria, prompting the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services late Friday to issue an official order halting sales.

The products were already part of a voluntary recall, and agency spokeswoman Erin Moffett said in a statement that the department “continues to work closely with our state and federal partners on this investigation and enforcement of the sale moratorium.”
