NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – After concerns about Listeria contamination, Blue Bell Ice Cream has voluntarily recalled ALL of its products currently on the market. The recall includes ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and frozen snacks made at all of its facilities.

A press release from the Brenham, Texas-based company say the products “have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.”

In the statement Blue Bell CEO and president Paul Kruse said, “We’re committed to doing the 100 percent right thing, and the best way to do that is to take all of our products off the market until we can be confident that they are all safe.”

Blue Bell is the very best ice cream. They are going to keep making it but not sell any until everything tests out all right.

Yikes. Not a good thing to happen to the little creamery in Brenham.

Sad to hear that it’s now become a product wide/company wide recall. Strange.

You bet - eating as I am reading and writing. We bought 4 half gallons a couple of weeks ago when it was on sale. Sent them an email and told them we only had enough left for one more week so they better get back in operation by that time!!!

I’m sure they have insurance to cover something like this.

It only takes one person messing up one time and you have to destroy all product and stop production until you know the problem is fixed.

There was nothing I hated more then recalls.

And half the time you were not even sure that all the stuff you were recalling and destroying even had the possibility of having anything wrong with it.

In recalls there is no such thing as over reacting.

Blue Bell is not telling the whole story. Someone has done this on purpose.

Simultaneous problems from three different factories in three different states isn’t passing the smell test. After years of no problems to have a complete breakdown? Either some cost cutter changed the process, or they are being sabotaged. Either a management problem or a union problem. But they need to figure out which and focus on people, not equipment.

Have to be someone pretty high up to hit plants in Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas all at the same time.

It is interesting that it affects multiple plants in multiple states, isn't it?
