Brooklyn, New York-based Real Kosher Ice Cream is recalling all flavors of its Soft Serve On The Go ice cream and sorbet cups in grocery and convenience stores due to potential Listeria contamination.

The recalled product is packaged in an 8-ounce clear plastic cup and has a clear plastic cover with a seal and spoon attached to it. The UPC is the only identifiable code on the package. All product produced up to Aug. 4 is being recalled. See the list below.


Soft Serve On The Go Cups were distributed in the states of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.

To date, two cases of illness have been reported in this outbreak in two states, New York and Pennsylvania. Both individuals were hospitalized but no deaths have been reported.

The recall is the result of an individual becoming ill and reporting to have eaten this product. Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture tested samples of product and one sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.
