The Schwebel’s bakery in Youngstown is cleared to begin production again after a lab found that listeria found at the facility does not pose a risk to the public.

The bakery halted production operations this week when an internal routine environmental sampling conducted by the company found the presence of an undetermined species of listeria at the facility.

As a result, Schwebel’s reported the preliminary findings to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and immediately initiated a voluntary withdrawal of all products shipped from the facility.

An Independent, certified lab confirmed Wednesday that the species of listeria found in the bakery in Youngstown is not the species that poses a risk to public health.

“Full production at the Youngstown facility is expected to resume within 24 hours,” said Schwebel Baking Company President Paul Schwebel.

Schwebel’s, founded in 1906, operates four bakeries in Ohio.
