What’s the Problem?
June 16, 2015 – Although the investigation is over, officials warn that Blue Bell ice cream can still make you sick.
“This outbreak investigation is over. However, people could continue to get sick because recalled products may still be in people’s freezers and consumers unaware of the recalls could eat them,” CDC said. “Institutions should not serve and retailers should not sell recalled products. Read the Advice to Consumers, Institutions, and Retailers.”
On April 20, Blue Bell recalled all of its products including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and frozen snacks. On June 9, the company announced that it had provided the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) with a list of corrective actions being taken at its plants in Brenham, Texas; Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; and Sylacauga, Alabama.
“We hope our efforts demonstrate the seriousness with which we are taking this situation, as well as our commitment to making sure we get this right,” said Blue Bell President and CEO Paul Kruse. “We are committed to seeing this plan through and to working with the F.D.A. each step of the way.”
