More bad news for Blue Bell ice cream. The company has issued a voluntary recall for containers of 'Butter Crunch Ice Cream' due to the possibility of a foreign object in the product.
A consumer found a piece of a plastic tool inside their ice cream and got in touch with Blue Bell, according to the press release. How did the plastic get in the ice cream. The plastic came from a broken tool that was "inadvertently incorporated" during production, the company said.
"In an abundance of caution, the company is recalling a full day of production of this flavor from this manufacturing facility," the company said.
The specific lot of half gallons was produced on August, 26, 2019 at the Sylacauga, Alabama plant. The ice cream was distributed to nine states; Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
The recalled product has the code "082621222" labeled on top of the lid. If this matches the ice cream in your fridge, Blue Bell says to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Blue Bell says no injuries have been reported and has asked that stores remove the product.
