Texas Listeria Cluster Linked to Ice Cream

The Outbreak News Today blog has reported an outbreak of Listeriosis associated with Blue Bell ice cream in Texas, with the following message:

Retailers are urged not to sell or serve products from the Oklahoma plant. They can be identified by checking for letters “O,” “P,” “Q,” “R,” “S” and “T” following the code date printed on the bottom of the product package. Consumers should discard or return Blue Bell products with those letters.
