Sick From Ice Cream

It seems like there are several cases recently that invovle some kind of bacteria in foods. One of the latest involves Blue Bell ice cream and a link to listeria. Susan McGalla said the company has decided to recall some of its flavors of ice cream. There were a few people in Kansas who got sick after eating Blue Bell products, and there were three in Texas who got sick from what appears to be the same strain of listeria.

The strain has been seen in the small cups that the company produces, but it makes you wonder just how many cartons or ice cream bars are floating around in stores that contain listeria. When a company this big has issues with a bacteria that kills people just because they enjoy a treat, it doesn’t make you feel much better about smaller companies that might not have the top of the line resources to keep out bacteria. The Blue Bell company is trying to make things right, but it might be a little too much too late.
