There's another listeria scare and another recall for Blue Bell ice cream



Blue Bell Creameries is voluntarily recalling two flavors of its ice cream over contamination concerns, the Texas-based company said on Twitter Wednesday.

That's right, another recall.

Two weeks after Blue Bell unveiled a delicious new flavor to its line of frozen treats, the company says it is recalling packages of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

The company said a batch of edible cookie dough it gets from a third-party supplier, Aspen Hills, may contain listeria -- a bacteria that can potentially be deadly for the young, sick or elderly.

"We are issuing a voluntary recall on two ice cream flavors."

Blue Bell is removing "Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough" and "Cookie Two Step," from frozen food aisles. The batch numbers are printed inside the lids.

Both Blue Bell and Aspen Hills say no illnesses have been reported.

Last year's listeria scare

This isn't the first time Blue Bell's had to take back its goods over listeria concerns.

Last year, Blue Bell had to halt production and issue a massive recall for all its products due to a listeria outbreak that forced the company to layoff 35% of its workforce for the first time in the company's 100-year history.
