Blue Bell Creameries has issued a voluntary recall on ice creams that contain cookie dough products. The recall was announced on Monday, October 10, 2016. Texas’ beloved ice cream company states in a recall notice that some of their ice creams contain cookie dough produced by a third party supplier, Aspen Hills, Inc., and are thought to contain a Listeria moncytogenes strain. This strain can pose a fatal health risk to young children, the frail and elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.

Blue Bell states in their notice that “[a]lthough 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.” The notice goes on to inform the public that the following ice creams, produced between February 2 and September 7, 2016, have been recalled:

  • Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, half-gallons and pints
  • Blue Bell Cookie Two Step, half-gallons and pints
  • Blue Bell Blue Monster, 3 gallon
  • Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie, 3 gallon
  • Blue Bell Krazie Kookie Dough, 3 gallon

According to Blue Bell, these products were distributed to Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. They advise consumers not to eat these cookie dough products, but instead to return them to the place they were purchased for full refund.
