Let us know how you feel about Blue Bell

Blue Bell Creameries announced Wednesday that it has voluntarily recalled some of its ice cream amid another listeria scare.

We’re as sad as you are, trust us.

The recall affects about 2,000 cases of cookie dough produced in August that was sent to Blue Bell facilities in Texas and Alabama, for inclusion in the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Cookie Two Step flavors.

Blue Bell said the ice cream was set to be distributed in 10 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. (Note that Texas isn’t on that list.)

This isn’t the first time the ice cream has been recalled; Blue Bell only returned to the shelves a little more than a year ago after the company’s first recall in its 109-year history. That outbreak led to three deaths and sickened 10 people.

This possible listeria outbreak only affects a few flavors, though, and that means there’s still plenty of ice cream on the shelves.
