The recall of Nestle Drumsticks includes two different types. The first are boxes of the 16 count Variety Pack. The second are boxes of the 24 count Vanilla Pack. The reason for the recall is the possibility of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can cause Listeriosis. This is an infection that can cause fevers, muscle aches, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal symptoms. Pregnant women are especially at threat due to the possibility of “miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn” that can be caused by the illness.

Here are some specifics concerning the Nestle Drumsticks products in the recall.

  • 16 Count Variety Pack — The products have a Best Before dates ranging from June 2 to June 15 of 2017. They also have a UPC of “72554-11096” on them.
  • 24 Count Vanilla Pack — The drumsticks in this recall include Best By dates ranging from June 16 to June 19 of 2017. The UPC for this product is 72554-00160.”

There have been no cases of illnesses that have been reported in connection to the affected Nestle Drumsticks products. The drumsticks came from a factory where tests showed positive results for Listeria monocytogenes on the contact services of some of the equipment.
