Blue Bell Recall: half gallons of Butter Crunch ice cream

SYLACAUGA, Ala. (AP) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says Blue Bell Creameries is recalling a batch of ice cream made at an Alabama plant over concerns it may contain pieces of plastic.

The agency made the announcement Wednesday. News outlets report about 1,700 half gallons of Butter Crunch ice cream produced at the Sylacauga, Alabama, plant on Aug. 26 may be contaminated.

Blue Bell said in a statement that a customer reported finding a plastic tool in their ice cream. The company says an investigation found the broken tool was accidentally added during production.

The recalled ice cream can be identified by the following code located on the top of the packaging lid: 082621222

The product was sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Stores have been told to remove the ice cream from their shelves and customers who purchased it can receive a refund.
