Brenham - Blue Bell Creameries is voluntarily recalling all of its ice cream products made with a cookie dough ingredient supplied by a third-party supplier, Aspen Hills Inc because the product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The Brenham, Texas-based ice cream producer expanded its recall late Monday afternoon to include all its flavors of ice cream containing the cookie dough after Aspen Hills provided additional information on the affected cookie dough lots.
In a statement on its website, Blue Bell said: " Although our products in the marketplace have passed our test and hold program, which requires that finished product samples from a batch test negative for Listeria monocytogenes before the batch can be released, Blue Bell is initiating this recall out of an abundance of caution."
While no illnesses have been reported relating to this recall, consumers are warned not to eat any of the ice cream products containing cookie dough. Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal illness in children, pregnant women the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems.
This recall includes the following products in half gallons and pints: Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Blue Bell Cookie Two Step sold to retail outlets, and three-gallon flavors sold to food service accounts including Blue Bell Blue Monster, Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie, and Blue Bell Krazy Kookie Dough. These products were produced beginning February 2, 2016, through September 7, 2016.
The recalled products were distributed to retail outlets and food service facilities in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
Check your freezers and please, do not consume these products. Throw them out or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may call 979-836-7977, Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST.
