Blue Bell Ice Cream is voluntarily recalling two types of cookie dough ice cream produced in the Sylacauga plant in Alabama.
The company asked for a recall of the half gallon Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and the Blue Bell Cookie Two step as well as the pint Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Blue Bell Ice Cream’s cookie dough supplier, Aspen Hills, Inc., requested the recall over possible Listeria monocytogenes concerns. The bacteria can cause serious health problems and may be fatal for some. People at high risk include the young, elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems. Systems include headache, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and stiffness. Listeria can cause miscarriages and still births in pregnant women.
