Blue Bell recalls a batch of its "Butter Crunch Ice Cream" to have a possible foreign object



Blue Bell Creameries issued a half-gallon voluntary recall of their "Butter Crunch Ice Cream" because of the possibility of a foreign object in the product, the company announced on Tuesday.

A consumer found a plastic piece of tool inside their ice cream and contacted Blue Bell, according to the press release. The plastic was from a broken tool that was "unintentionally incorporated" during production, the company says.

  Blue Bell announced the recall Tuesday.

"In an abundance of caution, the company recalls a full day of production of this flavor from this manufacturing plant," the company said.

The specific half gallon batch 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" marked on the lid. If this matches the ice cream in your fridge, Blue Bell says to return it to the point of purchase for a full refund.

  The code can be found on top of the lid.

Blue Bell says no injuries have been reported and has asked the stores to remove the product.

The US Food and Drug Administration also shared the news of the recall on Wednesday, and Blue Bell said they are working with the agency.
In 2015, Blue Bell recalled all its ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and other frozen sweets that were sold in 23 states after a listeria outbreak. [19659013]
