Refrozen Ice cream equals Food Poisoning

Many shops in India keep icecream and at some of them when power goes (in effective or no back up) the ice cream melts and then is re-frozen. This can happen in home freezer too. When this happens there is ice in the icecream and it
Looses original texture.

Refrozen icecream easily causes food poisoning. A bacteria called listeria grows and easily causes food poisoning.

Please dont consume such icecream and never freeze melted icecream from a party or even one at home.

If u have had a food poisoning related incident with u or family after having ice cream please share. more

We are surrounded with pseudo-scientists quite often publishing our 'dream derived' ideas to hoist scare-crows, presumably to gain an opportunity to stand under a lime-light. more  
It is a fact that refrozen ice cream causes food poisoning, but what is the remedy ??? How to enforce awareness among public. more  
I do not agree with opinion of Ms. Sneha Goyal. Request her to please give scientific reasoning, and instances of poisoning. It is not good to spread rumors. more  
There are no incidences reported as yet of food poisoning caused by re Frozen ice cream further the ice partials are seen in home made ice cream kept open in freezer but not in packed ice cream so it seems very difficult to share food poisoning cases .how ever precaution is always better. more  
Useful information but not alarming due to the following.
1. There is a big increase in the availability of superior thermal insulation. Freezers are now available which in case of power failure can keep the food frozen for 6 hours or even more. These have been developed for rural areas in particular. And the cost difference from normal freezers is not much. The freezers are generally supplied by the product supplier.
2. Barring small villages and remote areas, the power supply has become very reliable. There are fewer and fewer breakdowns. Local faults are attended to quickly.

In the urban and semi urban areas such a situation is not likely to occur. One should however avoid buying ice cream and other frozen food from way side joints and while shopping this should be the last item purchased and from as near the residence as possible so as to avoid it getting melted on the way. more
