At least 8 people were hospitalized for listeria infections in Texas and Kansas, and 3 of them died in a Kansas hospital, according to the CDC. The contamination was tracked to a Blue Bell ice cream production line in Brenham, TX, and later to the company’s plant in Broken Arrow, OK.
The patients in Texas were hospitalized for unrelated health problems when they developed listeriosis after eating Blue Bell 3-ounce ice cream cups produced at the company’s Broken Arrow plant.
