Listeria can sometimes be fatal to young children and the elderly, and can make healthy people sick. There have not been any illnesses reported in connection with the recall yet.

Nestle says this is not related to the Listeria recall for Blue Bell ice cream.

Anyone who bought the recalled ice cream should bring it back to the store, Nestle says.
