The Food and Drug Administration issued a consumer advisory March 13 about certain Blue Bell ice cream products made in Texas. The notice was issued after several confirmed cases of Listeriosis in Kansas were linked to products made on a single production line at the Blue Bell Creameries plant in Brenham.

Blue Bell has stopped production and distribution of ice cream products from that line and has removed them from stores and any other retail outlets.

The advisory does not include Blue Bell cups, pints, or half gallons. The affected products include the following novelty items made on the line:

•Chocolate Chip Country Cookie

•Great Divide Bar

•Sour Pop Green Apple Bar

•Cotton Candy Bar

•Scoops

•Vanilla Stick Slices

•Almond Bar

•No Sugar Added Mooo Bar (regular Mooo Bars are not included).

Consumers should not eat these items and should discard any of these products they may have in their freezers.

Recent laboratory tests of three ice cream products from the Brenham production line -- Country Cookie, Great Divide, and Scoops -- indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium that can cause severe illness. The company is calling back additional ice cream items because they were made on the same production line.

Symptoms of Listeriosis can include fever, muscle aches, diarrhea, and vomiting. People with these symptoms should consult a physician. Symptoms typically occur three to 70 days after exposure. The disease affects primarily older people, pregnant women, newborns, and people with weakened immune systems.

Listeriosis is required to be reported in Texas. No Texas cases have been reported in connection to any Blue Bell products.

Blue Bell, headquartered in Brenham, has been licensed in Texas as a frozen dessert manufacturer since 1981, when the state enacted the frozen dessert licensing requirement. Texas inspects these facility types monthly. No enforcement action has been taken against the facility, and it is operating in compliance with food safety laws.

Texas continues to work closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and with Blue Bell Creameries to gather additional information and ensure the items have been removed from stores.
