The product, 30 ounce PICs Fudge Bars with a UPC of 41735 09250 and a best-if-used-by date of March 6, 2020, is made by Fieldbrook Farms.

Fieldbrook Farms says a limited supply of 12ct PICS Original Fudge Bars was inadvertently shipped to a single retailer, Price Chopper. Because this product was not intended for sale, Fieldbrook has asked Price Chopper to remove all fudge bars from their stores shelves.

Price Chopper notes the recall is due to positive test results for listeria in the production environment.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
