Additional information:

According to the FDA, Blue Bell initiated the recall when it was notified by a consumer of the presence of a piece of a plastic tool in a half-gallon of its Butter Crunch Ice Cream product. The company investigation revealed the broken tool was inadvertently incorporated into the production process in a small amount of Butter Crunch Ice Cream product. You should neither serve nor consume the recalled Ice Cream products identified above.

In general, if bone, glass, metal, plastic and/or rubber fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Ice Cream products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the ice cream to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat choking, oral injury, internal ingestion and/or GI tract laceration.
