Five cases of listeriosis in Kansas are linked to ice cream given to patients at a Kansas hospital. Listeriosis is a serious infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium
Listeria monocytogenes. Ice cream products linked to the outbreak have been recalled by Blue Bell Creameries. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), the Kansas Department of Agriculture, state officials in Texas and Oklahoma, and federal partners are working together to investigate the contamination and prevent more cases. Consumers should discard any recalled product in home freezers. See the Blue Bell Creameries website for up to date information about recalled products.
