Have you been following the multi-state listeria outbreak? Very scary.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been investigating, and they’d pinpointed Florida as the state from which the outbreaks were stemming from.

Now they’ve pinpointed the source further. The CDC has sent a warning to Big Olaf Creamer in Sarasota to cease from selling or serving products until further notice.

The CDC along with the Food and Drug Administration made the initial assessment that Florida was where the listeria was emanating from. The count is now 23 people who have become ill with listeria during the last week.

Big Olaf Creamery has six physical locations in Sarasota County, according to its website. In addition, it has nine other retailers throughout Florida. Sprinkles Ice Cream Shop is on St. Pete Beach. Twistee Treat is on Pine Island Road in North Fort Myers. Super Scoops in Treasure Island. Beverly’s Ice Cream is in Clearwater Beach.

If you visit the CDC’s website, you’ll see that it says public health officials are still interviewing people about the foods they ate during the month leading up to when they got sick.

Specifically, on the website it says: “Of the 17 people interviewed, 14 (82%) reported eating ice cream. Among 13 people who remembered details about the type of ice cream they ate, six reported eating Big Olaf Creamery brand ice cream or eating ice cream at locations that might have been supplied by Big Olaf Creamery.”

Of all the cases, tragically, one person from Illinois has passed away, and one woman who was pregnant ended up having a miscarriage.

Nearly all of those who have gotten ill live in Florida or have traveled to Florida.

So scary. Hopefully, the CDC and FDA can get to the bottom of it all soon.
