CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams has reportedly found listeria in its production plant. They have halted production for the second time since April, when they voluntarily recalled all ice creams, frozen yogurts, sorbets, and ice cream sandwiches.

The Columbus, Ohio-based company stated on its website on Friday that listeria was discovered during a routine monitoring investigation. It claimed that every batch of ice cream has been tested, and they will reopen when they can guarantee that the products are "100% free of Listeria."

Jeni's is temporarily closing its 21 retail shops because there isn't enough ice cream available to keep the stores stocked.

Jeni's shut down production on April 23 after listeria was found in pints of ice cream and the production plant, recalled its products, and closed shops. Production resumed May 13 after a thorough cleaning.

Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries also shut down in April after listeria in its products was linked to three deaths.
