On Wednesday, the company announced the recall of select products, including Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Blue Bell Cookie Two Step. These ice cream varieties were produced at an Alabama plant. The cookie dough ingredient in the ice cream potentially contains listeria, according to Blue Bell.

Aspen Hills, Inc., a third party supplier, provided the cookie dough ingredient, Blue Bell said. Aspen Hills has since issued a voluntary recall of the products it supplied to Blue Bell.

“Blue Bell is initiating this recall out of an abundance of caution,” the company said in a release. No illnesses have been reported so far.

To ensure consumer safety, the company promptly removed the affected products from store shelves. Blue Bell prioritizes customer well-being, taking the recall seriously and providing detailed information on the affected products and production dates for easy identification and return.
