Blue Bell Ice Cream Recall

Scott Monge

The FDA reported that Blue Bell voluntarily expanded its recall all of their products because of an possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. Samples taken on March 17 and March 27, 2015 in the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream half gallon showed presence of the Listeria monocytogenes.

On March 13, 2015 Blue Bell has removed all affected products for the markets and has shut down the production where the products were made.

As of April 20, 2015, a total of 10 patients have been infected with several strains of Listeria monocytogenes from four states: Arizona (1), Kansas (5), Oklahoma (1), Texas (3). All 10 were hospitalized; three deaths have been reported in Kansas. Although it is not confirmed, according to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, hospital records available for four patients show that all were served ice cream from Blue Bell Creameries’.

Consumers should not eat any of the recalled products. If these products are in your freezer, they should be thrown away or returned, even if some of them have been eaten without anyone becoming ill.

CBS news reports, a response from the CEO of Jeni’s John Lowe, released in an online statement on the company’s website that it is working with its suppliers to determine if the listeria was introduced by one of the ingredients the company uses. The company said Thursday it is recalling all ice creams, frozen yogurts, sorbets and ice cream sandwiches and temporarily closing retail stores.

About Listeria

Listeria generally only affects the elderly, people with compromised immune systems and pregnant women. It can cause miscarriage, stillbirth and premature labor for women and serious illness or death in newborn babies. Healthy, younger adults and most children can consume listeria with no ill effects or only mild illness.

Listeria is commonly found in processed meats, unpasteurized cheeses and unpasteurized milk. In a 2011 outbreak, Listeria was linked to 30 deaths found in cantaloupes.

Consumers should not eat any of the recalled products. If these products are in your freezer, they should be thrown away or returned, even if some of them have been eaten without anyone becoming ill.
