    “The FDA has jurisdiction over this, and they’re going to be monitoring the whole thing,” says Doyle. “The FDA is going to be all over these Blue Bell plants for a while.”

    Blue Bell will also need to reevaluate and validate its protocol to make sure it’s testing at the right place and time before the ice cream goes out, food safety expert Darin Detwiler, senior policy coordinator at the nonprofit STOP Foodborne Illness and an adjunct professor at Northeastern University, tells Yahoo Health.

    I didn't know that many folks liked Blue Bell until I heard my wife and her friends talking about it. Trust me, it's safe. From my experience in my fields of work, when something like this happens all the "i" are dotted, and "T" crossed.

    Peace!

    Blue Bell Ice Cream Back on Store Shelves After Listeria Recall


    BRENHAM, Texas (AP) – Blue Bell ice cream is back.

    Blue Bell Creameries resumed selling its products at select locations Monday, four months after the Texas-based retailer halted sales due to listeria contamination.

    Blue Bell ice cream is now available at stores in the Houston and Austin areas, including in the company’s hometown of Brenham, plus parts of Alabama.

    Blue Bell Workers Describe Unsanitary Conditions Before Listeria Outbreak


    Former employees of Texas-based ice cream maker Blue Bell Creameries are speaking out about the unsanitary conditions at their factory, which was linked to a deadly outbreak of listeria.

    “It’s a fantastic product and they’ve done a lot for this community, but at the same time, there’s a bad side to Blue Bell where everything was overlooked,” Terry Schultz, who worked in the company’s Brenham, Texas, factory, told CBS News ...
