Blue Bell Ice Cream is recalling select lots of Rocky Road pints produced in its Brenham, Texas, plant because they may be mispackaged and actually contain Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream. That ice cream contains the undeclared allergens soy and wheat.
No illnesses have been reported to date. The problem was discovered when a Blue Bell employee restocking a retailer observed the incorrect packaging.
The pints can be identified as a Rocky Road pint with a Cookies ‘n Cream lid, and contain Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream. They can also be identified by the following code located on the bottom of the pint: 022918576. A picture of the affected product is included below.
The ice cream pints were distributed in Texas and Louisiana through retail outlets, including food service accounts, convenience stores and supermarkets.
