Following the Oct 4 recall for frozen blackberries by Cornerstone Premium Foods because of a possible Norovirus contamination, Blue Bell Ice Cream has recalled select half-gallon ice cream because it may contain foreign objects, specifically plastic tool pieces.

The recalled ice cream includes Blue Bell’s Butter Crunch flavor that was produced on Aug. 26 at its Sylacauga, Alabama plant. The affected ice cream has a lot code of 082621222 located on the top of the packaging lid.

Labels of the recalled ice cream can be viewed here.

Blue Bell distributed the recalled ice cream to stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. The ice cream has been removed from store shelves.

Consumers can return the recalled ice cream to the place of purchase for a full refund. Questions can be directed to Blue Bell by calling 979-836-7977, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST.

Blue Bell discovered the issue when a customer notified the company about a piece of plastic tool found in a half-gallon of Butter Crunch ice cream. Blue Bell identified that a broken tool was inadvertently incorporated into the ice cream during the production process.

The company is recalling the ice cream out of “an abundance of caution.” It has recalled a full day’s worth of production of the ice cream from its Sylacauga facility. It has not received any reports of injuries related to the recalled ice cream.
