Federal officials said Saturday that an outbreak of Listeria accusing one of the deaths and hospitalization of 22 people in 10 states were associated with ice cream made in Florida.

Family-owned Big Olaf Creamery in Sarasota, Florida, sells ice cream exclusively in Florida. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.. According to the CDC, 10 of the hospitalized people lived outside the state and visited Florida last month.

Infections associated with Big Olaf ice cream products have occurred in the last 6 months and have affected people between the ages of 1 and 92. CDC said.. Five became ill during pregnancy and one experienced fetal loss.

Of the 17 people interviewed by the CDC, 14 said they consumed ice cream. Six people reported eating ice cream made by Big Olav and eating ice cream where the brand might have been supplied.

Big Olav ice cream is made by Amish artisans in a creamy near Pinecraft in Sarasota’s neighborhood. According to the company website..

Big Olav began contacting retailers on Friday to discourage selling products, the CDC said, advising customers to dispose of any remaining products from the brand. No full recall has been issued.

Representatives of the Big Olaf Creamery did not get immediate comments on Sunday.

Listeria monocytogenes causes fatal illness. About 1,600 people in the United States suffer from listeriosis from contaminated food each year.

According to the CDC, infections can cause flu-like symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, vomiting, and diarrhea. These symptoms begin about two weeks after ingesting a food containing bacteria, but the onset varies. In severe cases, it may take several months to develop, U.S. Food and Drug Administration said..

According to the FDA, past outbreaks of Listeria monocytogenes have been associated with unpasteurized milk and ice cream, poorly cooked poultry and raw vegetables, especially those with weakened immunity. It’s easy.

According to the CDC, one in five people with listeriosis die. Infection is especially dangerous during pregnancy and causes fetal loss in about 20% of cases.

According to the CDC, the number of people affected by the outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes is higher than generally reported.
