After an initial recall in March that caused three deaths and multiple illnesses, Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries is now recalling all of its products due to traces of Listeria--a bacteria commonly found in raw milk. 

The bacteria has been linked to facilities in Oklahoma and Texas, but the recalled products were distributed to about two dozen states as well as internationally. Blue Bell distributors as far as the Philippines have also been affected by the recall. It is not yet known how Listeria was introduced to Blue Bell’s plants.

Blue Bell CEO and president Paul Kruse issued a 30-second video statement on the company’s website:

“We are heartbroken over the situation and apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers. Our entire history has been dedicated to making the very best and highest quality ice cream we possibly could, and we’re committed to fixing the problem. Ice cream is a joy and a pleasure to eat--it certainly is for me and I do it every day, and it should never be a cause for concern. And for that we do apologize and we’re going to get it right.”

Additionally, in a news release, Kruse said that all products would be taken off the market until Blue Bell is confident that they are all safe. Specifically, Blue Bell has vowed to make major changes to the company’s cleaning and sanitizing processes, including daily lab testing. Products will be held and until tests prove that they are safe for consumption.
