Listeria Found In Blue Bell Production Facility


Blue Bell officials say they are still finding Listeria bacteria in their facilities, but that their enhanced cleaning procedures are working.

“Because Listeria is commonly found in the natural environment, no manufacturer can ever assume it can be entirely eradicated,” the company says in a written statement on their website. Blue Bell says none of its products shipped since their August relaunch┬áhave contained the food-borne bacteria, but adds that “no manufacturer can ever assume [Listeria] can be eradicated.”
