Another Listeria Recall by Blue Bell
Blue Bell Creameries has issued yet another recall of some of their ice cream flavors over concerns of listeria contamination.
According to the company, the chocolate chip cookie dough used in select ice creams could contain the Listeria bacteria. The dough was made by a third-party supplier named Aspen Hills Inc.
The recall involves Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough half gallons with the code date of 082618226 and pints with the code dates 081518242 and 082418242. Cookie Two Step half gallon cartons with the code dates 080418222 and 081818224 have also been recalled.
These cartons were sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.That's bad news, but at least Texas is not among the states listed.
Blue Bell is requesting that anyone who has purchased any of the affected cartons, return them to their place of purchase a for full refund.
Blue Bell issued a recall of all of their frozen dairy products after listeria was discovered in one of their factories almost a year ago. The company shut down production of all dairy products at that time to ensure that the bacteria had been eliminated. All of the company’s products finally returned to stores across the south earlier this year.
“No illnesses have been reported as of yet, but Blue Bell is taking this step because the company says they are committed to producing a safe, high-quality, great-tasting ice cream for you and your family to enjoy,”
