Blue Bell issues another recall over listeria contamination

In a repeat of last summer's recall of their signature product, Blue Bell has issued another voluntary recall of two flavors of its ice cream -- Cookie Two Step and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

All of the ice cream products involved in the recall was made in Sylacauga, Alabama. The recall involves almost 2,000 cartons that were sold across the south. The affected states include the following:

-- Florida

-- Alabama

-- Georgia

-- Mississippi

-- Louisiana

-- Kentucky

-- Tennessee

-- Virginia

-- North Carolina

-- South Carolina

The recall was announced by the company on Wednesday, Sept. 21, due to potential contamination from listeria monocytogenes, which was the cause of last summer's outbreak and Blue Bell recall that caused three deaths and sickened 10 others in Kansas, Arizona, Oklahoma and Texas.

The federal investigation into last year's outbreak is still ongoing. The company is laying the blame for its latest contamination woe at the feet of Aspen Hills, Inc., a third-party supplier.

In this latest consumer scare, the Texas-based creamery issued a statement reading, in part: "Out of an abundance of caution, we are voluntarily recalling select products that contain a chocolate chip cookie dough ingredient." It said that no illnesses have yet been reported.

Listeria can cause serious and occasionally fatal infections in young children, those already debilitated by weak immune systems and elderly people. Consumers who purchased a recalled ice cream product can return it to the point of purchase and get a full refund.

Some consumers took to social media to complain that they or their family members were experiencing symptoms from eating the ice cream; the company instructed them to get in touch with their consumer relations department.

Companies can be held liable for causing consumer illnesses and deaths from product contamination during the manufacturing process.
