The CDC is checking Big Olaf’s ice cream for a listeria outbreak

Federal and state health investigators have linked the listeria outbreak in Florida at least in part to the ice cream business in Sarasota.

On Saturday evening, the CDC said Big Olaf Creamery was voluntarily reaching out to retail sites that use ice cream “to recommend that ice cream products not be sold.”

“Consumers who have Big Olaf Creamery brand ice cream at home should discard any remaining product,” the CDC said on its website.

The Florida Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, Public Health and regulatory officials in several other states and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are collecting different types of data to investigate the multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes, the CDC said.
