Blue Bell Ice Cream has recalled its chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream in 3-ounce cups produced at its plant in Broken Arrow.
The company said in a news release, the ice cream cups under recall “have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems."
On March 22, the Kansas Department of Health & Environment reported one positive test for Listeria monocytogenes on a chocolate service cup recovered from a hospital in Wichita.
The cup was produced in the Broken Arrow plant on April 15, 2014.
The cups included in the recall were not sold through retail outlets such as convenience stores and supermarkets.
The recall involves the following products...
Ice Cream Cup Chocolate (3 FL OZ) No UPC – SKU #453
Ice Cream Cup Strawberry (3 FL OZ) No UPC – SKU #452
