According to US Recall News, Ziegenfelder Co., of Wheeling, W.Va., is recalling about 3,000 cases of Budget $aver Cherry Pineapple Monster Pops and Sugar Free Twin Pops because of the possible health risk. 

In addition to Ohio, the ice pops were distributed to retail grocers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

The ice pop products, sold 12 to a pack, were delivered between April 5 and April 19, US Recall News reports.

Listeria is a bacteria that causes food poisoning and is especially dangerous to the elderly, people with weakened immune systems and pregnant women. While a pregnant woman may experience mild, flu-like symptoms, the illness caused by Listeria -- called listeriosis -- can lead to miscarriage, premature delivery or life-threatening infection in newborns.

Symptoms in people besides pregnant women can include fever and muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions.

Consumers who have purchased the affected ice pops are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
