There's another major recall and this time it involves ice cream. According to, Blue Bell Creameries has decided to recall its ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and other frozen treats because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. In the last few weeks the company has been issuing gradual recalls but with more people getting sick, they've decided to pull ALL of their products from the shelves. Health officials say that three people have died and five others have fallen ill from the bacteria that may have come from Blue Bell products.

According to the Blue Bell website, the products being recalled are distributed to retail outlets, including food service accounts, convenience stores and supermarkets in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma,  South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming and international locations. The company is urging anyone who has recently purchased Blue Bell products to return them for a full refund. Here's the official statement from the company posted on their website:

“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,” said Paul Kruse, Blue Bell CEO and president. “We are heartbroken about this situation and apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers. Our entire history has been about making the very best and highest quality ice cream and we intend to fix this problem. We want enjoying our ice cream to be a source of joy and pleasure, never a cause for concern, so we are committed to getting this right.”
