Multiple Jeni’s Ice Cream products recalled for possible health risk, plus 60+ other brands

Sav McKee

We know that the best part of summer is indulging in all of the ice cream treats, but after a nationwide recall of over 67 brands of ice cream, you might want to check the labels in your freezer more carefully.

Totally Cool, a Maryland-based ice cream production company, notified the Food and Drug Administration on Monday that they stopped the production and distribution of nearly 70 of their products over a potential Listeria contamination. 

You might be wondering how a Maryland based ice cream company would affect us here in Columbus? Well, Totally Cool is behind popular brands like Friendly’s, Hershey’s, and yes – even our beloved Jeni’s Ice Cream. Specific Jeni’s recalled items include their 3.5 fl oz ice cream sandwiches in the following flavors: Chocolate Silk Pie, Mint Chocolate Truffle Pie, and Triple Berry Tart Pie, plus the 3.5 oz Key Lime Pie Frozen Dessert. The recalled items will have the plant code 2465, and the “Best By Dates” will say 07/24/25 to /5/23/2026. 


Although Totally Cool said no illnesses had been reported to date, they’re encouraging customers to return the products for a full refund. For the full table of all recalled products, please visit this website.

The FDA says that Listeria can result in serious, sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, or people with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may only suffer short-term symptoms like severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

You may remember when a pint of Jeni’s Ice Cream tested positive for listeria back in 2015. In response to the contamination, the ice cream production facility was inspected and two spots were found contaminated with listeria. Jeni’s made the very difficult decision to close all of their scoop shops and pull every ice cream from store shelves, in every flavor. Luckily, Jeni’s was able to recover, and they came back bigger and better than ever.
