In the latest not-food-in-your-food recall, Blue Bell’s Butter Crunch Ice Cream got pulled after a customer found “a piece of a plastic tool” in a half-gallon bucket, according to the company-written, FDA-posted recall notice.
“The company investigation revealed the broken tool was inadvertently incorporated into the production process in a small amount of product,” the notice said. “In an abundance of caution, the company is recalling a full day of production of this flavor from this manufacturing facility.”
That day was Aug. 26, 2019, and the facility is in Sylacauga, Alabama. Half gallons have “082621222” on top of the lid. The ice cream went to Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Virginia. Customers can return the half gallons to the store of purchase for a full refund.
