    Blue Bell recalls all its ice cream products over Listeria concerns

    Blue Bell recalls ice cream over Listeria concerns - CNN.com


    (CNN)—After weeks of gradual recalls, Blue Bell Creameries is now pulling all of its products off the shelves.

    The company is recalling its entire line of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and other frozen snacks because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the company said Monday.

    "Today's decision was the result of findings from an enhanced sampling program initiated by Blue Bell which revealed that Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream half gallons produced on March 17, 2015, and March 27, 2015, contained the bacteria," the company said in a statement.

    It seems quite odd that the same listeria has effected multiple manufacturing locations - it is either a bad common supplier or some common and dangerous production techniques.

    I think Blue Bell would agree, that's why they're pulling EVERYTHING.

    I had a similar thought, what did they do wrong to effect every single production plant that they have? Very concerning.

    That's to bad. They had just completely restocked after our local grocer had themselves removed all BB product from their coolers.

    I sort of suspect corporate sabotage. Perhaps from those Commies over at Ben and Jerry's.

    Maybe raw cookie dough ice cream isn't such a good idea after all.

    Blue Bell has three manufacturing facilities (Texas/Oklahoma/Alabama). It either has to be a common supplier or a common violation of what are called "Critical Control Points" (CCPs). Sanitation is a CCP. Temperature could also be a CCP and a system-wide violation could occur if temperatures at all facilities are controlled from one location via computer program. Blue Bell would know if such a CCP violation occurred and when. It is then a corporate decision on how to proceed.

    Maybe several minutes in the microwave can kill that listeria and allow you your fix!
