DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WATE) – Several grocery store chains are recalling ice cream bars that may be contaminated with Listeria.

The bars were manufactured by Fieldbrook Foods Corporation between January 1 and December 31 of last year. The bars have sell by dates of January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.

The company says routine testing found Listeria in a few ice cream bar samples. They say there is no evidence of contamination before October 31, but the company extended the recall back to January 1 as a precaution.

No illnesses have been reported.
