FDA: Listeria found in Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams kitchen

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration says Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is battling listeria again, a problem that disrupted the company’s business last year.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2bXLmrz ) the FDA says in a letter to the company’s CEO that the agency found listeria in a production kitchen after two out of 75 swabs taken in January and February came back positive.

The FDA says the positive swabs came from prep-room and wash room floors and no listeria was found in the Columbus-based company’s products.

Jeni’s says in a blog post that its products remain free of listeria.

Jeni’s shut down twice last year after listeria was found in a pint of ice cream in Nebraska and in Jeni’s kitchen. A second finding on a kitchen floor occurred later that year.
