The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is issuing a consumer advisory for ice cream mix distributed by Autumnwood Farm of Forest Lake, Minnesota due to inadequate pasteurization. The Autumnwood Farm ice cream mix had been inadequately pasteurized since May 16, 2018. The mix was sold to three retail ice cream locations in Minnesota: LouLou Sweet & Savory Ice Cream and Coffee Shop (Minneapolis), Love Creamery (Duluth), and Pumphouse Creamery (Minneapolis).

There have been no reports of illness associated with these products.

The following products are affected:

  • All ice cream sampled or sold at LouLou Sweet & Savory Ice Cream and Coffee Shop, 2839 Emerson Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN, between 5/24/18 through 7/12/18. All products served or sold starting 7/13/18 are not affected.
  • All ice cream sampled or sold at Love Creamery, 1908 W. Superior St., Duluth, MN, between 6/11/18 and 7/12/18.
  • All ice cream sampled or sold at Pumphouse Creamery, 4754 Chicago Ave., Minneapolis, MN, between 5/24/18 and 7/12/18. This includes hand-dipped ice cream, pints, quarts, and ice cream cookie sandwiches. Pumphouse Creamery was closed on 7/13/18. All products served or sold starting 7/14/18 are not affected.

Improper pasteurization of dairy products may result in contamination with bacteria like E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, because the product does not reach temperatures high enough to kill microorganisms.

If you have ice cream product in your home from one of the affected stores during the dates listed, throw it away and do not eat it. If you have experienced gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting or diarrhea after consuming ice cream from the locations mentioned above, please contact your health care professional.
