Listeria Outbreak Linked to Blue Bell Ice Cream

Law Offices of Gary Green is currently investigating cases regarding Blue Bell Creamery’s recent Listeria outbreak.

Here’s the info you need to know from the Centers for Disease Control:

  • On April 20, 2015, Blue Bell Creameries voluntarily recalled all of its products currently on the market made at all of its facilities, including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet, and frozen snacks, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
  • Listeriosis is a life-threatening infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium (germ) Listeria monocytogenes. People at high risk for listeriosis include pregnant women and their newborns, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems.
  • This is a complex and ongoing multi-state outbreak investigation of listeriosis illnesses occurring over several years. Several strains of Listeria monocytogenes are involved in this outbreak. Information indicates that various Blue Bell brand products are the source of this outbreak.
  • CDC recommends that consumers do not eat any Blue Bell brand products, and that institutions and retailers do not serve or sell them.

Although the official recall took place in April of this year, there were reports of contamination as early as 2013. If you have eaten Blue Bell products in the last two years and experienced gastrointestinal distress, call Law Offices of Gary Green toll-free at 1-888-4GARYGREEN or email ggreen@gGreen.com to discuss your legal options.
