PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced a recall Monday for frozen desserts that may be contaminated with Listeria.

Aspen Hills, Inc. supplied the cookie dough pieces used as ingredients in Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae frozen desserts and Ashby’s Sterling Peanut Butter Landslide Ice Cream, according to the FDA.

Some cookie dough samples reportedly tested positive for Listeria.

The bacterium can cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea and abdominal pain in healthy adults. It can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people who may have weakened immune systems.
