OHIO — A frozen novelty manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain ice pops for possible listeria contamination, and Ohio is included in the list of 15 states.
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.
The Cherry Pineapple Monster Pops carry the UPC code 0-74534-84200-9, and have lot codes D09418A through D10018B.
The Sugar Free Pops carry the UPC code 0-74534-75642-9, and have lot codes D09318A through D10018B.
So far, there are no reported illnesses or incidents involving the product.
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.

Three Republicans and one Democrat weighed in on key issues ahead of the May primary, according to News Center 7 Reporter Sean Cudahy.
Democrat candidate Zach Dickerson called for bipartisanship. His primary opponent, Autumn Kern, was not at the forum.
The Republican candidates discussed taxes, Medicaid and schools. All of the candidates answered questions regarding gun control.
“We’ve made their jobs difficult enough by giving them so many restrictions,” Republican candidate Sarah Clark said.
“There are smarter, better ways to make our schools safer,” Dickerson said.
“I do not believe that students should be armed...in any capacity,” Republican candidate Marcus Rech said.
“Right now, it’s up to each community and that’s how I think it should be,” State Rep. Niraj Antani, R-Miamisburg, said.
The forum was organized by the Dayton League of Women Voters who said they think it’s important for people to know where the candidates stand.
