HOUSTON, TX - Blue Bell is back in Brenham! They’ve spent months preparing this facility to get back in business. After layoffs and furloughs back in May, they’re ready to get back in action!

This plant is the last to come back online after operations shut down due to cases of listeria linked to Blue Bell ice cream. In what seemed an ice cream nightmare, 3 people died from eating the tainted treats.

Joe Robertson with Blue Bell Public Relations said, “We’ve made enhancements to our facility, we’ve trained, we’ve cleaned… We have a test and hold procedure, where every batch that we produce is tested and held until it’s proven safe.”

One of the many prides of Brenham, Blue Bell is being welcomed back with open arms. Hopefully this mess is all cleaned up so blue bell can get their title back.
