Blue Bell to announce flavors returning to store shelves on Monday

Blue Bell will announce Monday the first flavor of ice cream set to return to store shelves.

The information will come one week ahead of the product’s return to stores in Houston and Austin. North Texas is included in Phase Two of the roll out at an unspecified date.

Blue Bell said it would announce flavors via its Instagram account.

Company products were linked to 10 listeria illnesses in four states, including three deaths in Kansas, before a recall April 20.

Listeria is a bacteria that can cause serious illness, especially in older adults, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

There’s still no set date for when production could resume at the company’s two plants in Oklahoma and Texas.
