PHILADELPHIA (CBS)—Weight Watchers has voluntarily recalled some of their frozen desserts due to a possible Listeria contamination.

The recall is for 100,000 cases Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae frozen desserts.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that 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.

Weight Watchers says there have been no consumer complaints or reports of illness related at this time.

The recall is for approximately 100,000 cases of Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae frozen desserts.
