Blue Bell has expanded its listeria-related recall to all products nationwide, according to a post on the company’s website today.

The Brenham-based ice cream maker has been trying to bounce back from a listera outbreak in March that was tied to some of its products made in Oklahoma, but this week, the company found evidence of further contamination in other products that had been made at the other plant in Brenham, 1 1/2 hours from Austin, so it expanded the recall.

Enhanced testing detected levels of the bacteria in chocolate chip cookie dough flavors made on two dates in March. You can find out more details about the recall and what to do with your Blue Bell products at bluebell.com.
