Several lots of the nationally-distributed Drumsticks, which consist of a scoop of ice cream in a sugar cone topped with a chocolate shell and chopped peanuts, have been recalled by the manufacturer due to possible listeria contamination.

“The company received positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes (LM) from equipment contact surfaces from a location on the production line where these products are made,” a  news release from Nestlé USA said. “There have been no positive test results for LM present in the Drumstick cones themselves.”

The recall applies to Drumstick 16-count Variety Pack and 24-count Vanilla Pack. The affected product codes, UPCs and Best Before dates are listed in the chart included with this report.

Consumers who may have purchased Drumsticks that are on the list should not consume the product. Return the product to the place of purchase or contact Nestlé Consumer Services for replacement.

“The quality and safety of our products remain our number one priority,” the Nestlé press release said in conclusion. “We apologize for any inconvenience this action represents for both our consumers and retail customers.”
