The Blue Bell Company, famous for their ice cream and many other dairy products, recently was forced to recall almost all of their sold products in twenty-three states. Blue Bell products are believed to be contaminated with the Listeria bacteria. This can be very serious for people who are young, very old, or have a weakened immune system. There is a recorded three people dying in the past year and ten people falling ill because of the issue. This became a known issue in 2010 and it is still progressing. The CDC is making it known that they recommend no one to buy or eat any Blue Bell products of fear it contains the bacteria.
