Brenham, Texas-based Blue Bell has expanded the recall of some ice cream products because of possible exposure to the listeria bacteria. Blue Bell is recalling 3-ounce cups of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream that have tab lids. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says the cups could be contaminated with the bacteria, which can cause fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. The Blue Bell creamery had previously this month recalled several other products made on the same production line after listeria was detected. Five people developed listeriosis in Kansas after eating Blue Bell products and the FDA says three of them died. That is indeed very sad. Ironically, the five ate the ice cream while hospitalized in Wichita for unrelated causes.
