Blue Bell Recalls All Ice Cream for Possible Listeria Contamination
A warning to drop the cone, the fear of tainted of Blue Bell Ice Cream has lead to a massive voluntary recall. This recall includes any and all products.
Statement from Blue Bell on the recall:
Blue Bell Ice Cream of Brenham, Texas, is voluntarily recalling all of its products currently on the market made at all of its facilities including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and frozen snacks because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
