Blue Bell recalling ice cream over listeria risk

(RNN) – Blue Bell is issuing a voluntary recall of two flavors of ice cream due to possible listeria.

Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Blue Bell Cookie Two Step flavors should be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The ice cream flavors under recall were distributed from 10 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The company says no illnesses have been reported but is recalling the product “out of an abundance of caution.”

The move comes after a third-party supplier used by Blue Bell issued a recall on cookie dough ingredient included in the ice cream, the company said.

The half-gallon Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor have a code date of 082618226 and the half-gallon Two Step flavor have code dates of 080418222 and 081818224.

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough pints have code dates of 081518242 and 082418242.
