    And what? Anyone can walk into any store and buy this stuff, so there's no control over who eats it and who doesn't. So they have to remove it all.

    Re: Blue Bell recalls all its ice cream products over Listeria concerns

    Listeria is a very serious concern - here in Toronto and Canada, we had a meat processing plant that was closed for several months and the company was seriously damaged by a listeria outbreak in its products with 22 people dying out of 57 who were affected.

    Not a matter to be joking about, or taking lightly, in my view.

    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Re: Blue Bell recalls all its ice cream products over Listeria concerns

    The CDC has linked Blue Bell to 10 cases of Listeria between 2010 and 2015 so the problem was systemic. Blue Bell says it is getting closer to pinpointing the problem which seems to be internal and the company is beefing up its Critical Control Points (CCPs) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). Employees will be retrained, the sanitary operation will be expanded and post-sanitation swab analysis (to detect lingering bacteria) will be increased by 800%. It will also set up programs (internal and external) to test every production batch for microbial contaminants before any product leaves a plant.

    Quite frankly, these are all steps which should have been implemented years ago. Someone's head should roll in Quality Control. There must be chain of custody (COC) refrigeration documentation from vendor to plant to store receiving. There should comprehensive external facility/document audits every six months. If Blue Bell plants are not federal inspected facilities, the company should seriously consider hiring former Federal Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) inspectors for each plant/shift. All of these pro-active steps are costly, but the combined costs of massive product recalls and the PR damage to corporate reputation are incalculable and oftentimes lead to corporate demise.

    It is a US corporation that depends on US domestic sales. Location has no correlation to consequences.

    Actually I'm not a customer of their ice cream. I just wanted to make sure our DP members knew about this.
