After recalling products in April because of bacterial contamination, Blue Bell is returning to select locations.+ READ ARTICLE
Just in time for Labor Day weekend, Blue Bell Creameries will be shipping ice cream to stores in Texas and Alabama. The company shut down production in April after a listeria outbreak and ordered a total recall of all its products, thus depriving loyal customers of a taste of their favorite frozen concoctions all summer. The company received permission from the state of Alabama in August to restart commercial production and distribution. Production is well below full capacity, and it is unknown how long it will take the regional producer to expand sales to additional states.
