Full Tilt Ice Cream of Seattle is recalling all dairy-based ice-cream flavors (except non-dairy frozen desserts) sold under the Full Tilt brand and produced between Jan. 1 and Dec. 19, 2014, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The Full Tilt dairy-based ice-cream products were distributed in Oregon and Washington through grocery stores and retail scoop shops. The ice cream was sold in 16-oz. paper containers with a 7-digit code ending in 14x (e.g., 0219142), as well as 1.5-gallon and 3-gallon plastic gallon tubs produced before 12/19/2014. The following table summarizes the affected products:
|Name of product||size||production dates||type of packaging|
|Full Tilt Ice Cream||16-oz. containers||01/01/2014-12/19/2014||paper|

|Full Tilt Ice Cream||3-gallon containers||01/01/2014-12/19/2014||plastic gallon|
No illnesses have been reported to date. These dairy-based ice-cream products contain ice-cream base produced and recalled by Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream Inc. as an ingredient. Full Tilt has since performed a rigorous sanitation schedule to prevent further contamination. This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Washington State Department of Agriculture. Consumers who have purchased Full Tilt are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (206) 963-5038 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday. Listeria 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.
