Wells Enterprise COVID release

601

LE MARS, IOWA – Wells Enterprises, Inc is recognized within the ice cream category for our
expertise in food safety and food quality and our vigilance in ensuring our ice cream products
and frozen desserts can be enjoyed by all. As stated in recent Center for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) reports, there is no evidence to
suggest that food produced in the United States can transmit COVID-19.
We, like everyone, have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely to ensure we’re doing
all we can to protect the health of our employees and safety of our products. As of Saturday,
March 21 we were notified that a Wells team member at our Le Mars corporate center tested
positive for COVID-19. The team member is on self-quarantine for the period currently
recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Team members known to have been in
contact with the individual have also been notified and asked to self-quarantine. Team
members quarantined during this time will not be allowed to return to work until the
recommended quarantine period has passed and they are symptom free. You can read more
about Wells’ commitment to our team members, consumers, customers and communities by
visiting the Wells Enterprises web site.
We’d like to reassure consumers that the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) we have in place in our
facilities to ensure food safety exceed the measures necessary to prevent COVID-19 and any cross
contamination. We are embracing social distancing and deploying our work-from-home policy for
individuals whose jobs allow, ensuring all team members who are ill stay home, and are giving
team members flexible time off accommodations so they can prioritize their health. Wells takes
pride in our food safety and quality and we are extremely proud of our products and the team
members making them.
Our ability to serve our consumers, customers and communities has not been impacted, nor
has the safety and quality of our products. We are monitoring the situation closely and will
continue to support our team members during this time
