Blue Bell issues recall for some Butter Crunch Half gallons


(WNCN) – Blue Bell is voluntarily recalling a select lot of half-gallon Butter Crunch ice cream for a possible foreign object, the FDA announced.

According to the FDA, Blue Bell discovered the issue when it was notified by a consumer of the presence of a piece of a plastic tool in a half-gallon of the Butter Crunch ice cream.

Blue Bell says they discovered the broken tool was inadvertently added into the production process in a small amount of product. They are only recalling product produced from a specific line on August 26, 2019 in its Sylacauga, AL plant.

In an abundance of caution, the company is recalling a full day of production of this flavor from this manufacturing facility, according to the FDA.

The Butter Crunch Ice Cream half gallons produced in Sylacauga can be identified by the following code located on the top of the packaging lid: 082621222.

The affected Butter Crunch Ice Cream half gallons were distributed in parts of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Consumers who have purchased these items can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. For more information, consumers with questions may call 979-836-7977, Monday–Friday 8 am– 5 pm CST.
