Blue Bell Creameries pull all products

On Tuesday , Blue Bell Creameries voluntarily recalled all their products due to concern over listeriosis.

Missouri is one of 23 states impacted by the recall, with some stores in Mid-Missouri selling the product.

The reason for the recall is two samplings of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream tested positive for the listeria.

Listeria is a bacteria that can be deadly for young children and the elderly, weakening the immune system.

All Blue Bell ice cream, frozen snacks, frozen yogurt and sherbet are recalled.

In a statement on the company website, President and CEO Peter Krause said, “We are heartbroken over this situation and apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers.

Our entire history has been dedicated to making the very best and highest quality ice cream we possibly could. And we’re committed to fixing the problem. Ice cream is a joy and a pleasure to eat. It certainly is for me and I do it everyday…and it should never be a cause for concern. And for that we do apologize. We’re going to get it right.”

The company went on to say it will implement five more safety procedures and testing.

Last month the company issued its first recall after ice cream contaminated with listeria was linked to three deaths in Kansas.
