    Hope the get this sorted before the real summer weather gets here.

    Jeni’s Product Recall

    We received the call that no ice cream maker, chef, or entrepreneur wants. A randomly selected pint of ours tested positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. Out of an abundance of caution, we made the swift decision to cease all ice cream production and sales until we can get to the very root of the problem. We are enlisting the help of experts so we can identify the cause, eliminate it, and return as quickly as possible to the business of making ice cream. — jeni

    It’s odd that this is happening just after Blue Bell had to do the same thing.

    Major ouch. Not only is it a tremendous financial setback, it’s totally damaging to the brand, especially outside of Columbus. A shame.

    That is odd. I’d presume Jeni’s and Bluebell use different sources; just a coincidence?

    Will be rooting for Jeni’s to recover…and for this to all be an effective precautionary measure of course (no one has gotten sick from this at this point.)

    Three deaths in Kansas & Texas over the past month. Listeria is no joke.

    Damn. That’s awful. I hope this doesn’t financially cripple them.

    One question for the board: does Jeni’s still use Snowville dairy products as its base? I don’t want to be seen as either spreading panic or smearing an awesome Ohio business here, but I’ve had a pretty awful stomach/intestinal bug for the better part of a week now (I’ll spare you the gory details), and I consume Snowville milk on a daily basis. I’d hate to think that Snowville is the root cause of this thing, but, at the same time, I’d like to know if I need to get rid of tainted milk. Is there anyone else having similar problems like this?

    Jeni’s stopped using Snowville about a year ago.

    I’m sure they have insurance, but I bet it’s still costing them a bunch.

    Some pretty nasty noroviruses have been going around Central Ohio for the last month. That is likely what you’ve been suffering through.

    Dang, skim through this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Listeria_monocytogenes

    Being a “facultative anaerobe” it can live with or without oxygen so it can survive exposure to air that would kill anaerobes like botullum.

    They will be able to trace is back to the farm where it came from. Although it’s a major scare, it should be sorted out relatively shortly. I forget where they get their milk from now that Snowville isn’t delivering to them.

    They use Smiths Dairy now – not quite the level of quality that Snowville championed.

    Their margins are so small this could prove tremendously damaging.

    First the Short North, then Liz Lesner restaurants, then CU, now Jeni’s! How many deaths can I take? I am going to have to shave my beard and burn my skinny jeans.

    I’m sure.

    Still kinda odd that there’s listeria problems in Oklahoma, Texas and now apparently Ohio all at the same time. Maybe a function of heightened monitoring?

    Guess it’s possible it could have been present for a while but only detected under heightened surveillance:

    http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/listeria-infection/basics/definition/con-20031039

    Healthy people rarely become ill from listeria infection, but the disease can be fatal to unborn babies and newborns. People who have weakened immune systems also are at higher risk of life-threatening complications. Prompt antibiotic treatment can help curb the effects of listeria infection.
