King Street's Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams will temporarily close due to a listeria outbreak. The wildly popular ice cream parlor announced today on its website
that it has "initiated a voluntary recall of all ice creams, frozen yogurts, sorbets, and ice cream sandwiches for all flavors and containers because of the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes." Symptoms of a listeria infection can include diarrhea, nausea, fever, and vomiting.
For those who have a suspect tub of Jeni's at home, the company asks customers to "dispose of them or return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund, and consult with their physician regarding any medical questions. Customers may also contact Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at 614-360-3905 between the hours of 9 am and 10 pm (E.D.T.) on April 23 and 24, from 9 am to 5 pm (E.D.T.) on April 25 and 26, and from 9 am to 5 pm (E.D.T.) on Mondays through Fridays thereafter.
