Blue Bell Announces Recall
Blue Bell Creameries has issued a recall of some of it's products.
The recall was announced Monday night. The affected products contain cookie dough that is potentially infected with listeria. Blue Bell made the decision after Aspen Hills, the Iowa based company that supplied the affected cookie dough announced their own recall. The recall affects other ice cream makes besides Blue Bell.
The Blue Bell recall involves half-gallons and pints of Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Blue Bell Cookie Two Step sold to retailers and three-gallon packages of Blue Bell Blue Monster, Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie and Blue Bell Krazy Kookie Dough sold to food-service clients. They were produced between Feb. 2 and Sept. 7 and distributed in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
This is the second recall of Blue Bell products for listeria after a recall earlier this year.
Listeria can be fatal in young children, frail or elderly people and people with weakened immune systems.
