BRENHAM, TEXAS — Blue Bell Creameries is expanding its recall of all products that were made with cookie dough that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The ingredients were supplied by Aspen Hills, Inc., according to the company.
The consumer and food service products made with the cookie dough pieces were distributed in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
The recall includes such products as half gallons and pints of Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Blue Bell Cookie Two Step sold to retail outlets, and three gallon flavors sold to food service accounts, including Blue Bell Blue Monster, Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie, and Blue Bell Krazy Kookie Dough. These products were produced from Feb. 2, 2016 through Sept. 7, 2016.
The company initiated a smaller recall of products containing the cookie dough on Sept. 22.
Last year, Blue Bell was linked to a deadly Listeria outbreak, which led to the company recalling all products from all plants in April 2015. Blue Bell has been in the process of reintroducing its products back into the marketplace.
