The Butter Crunch Ice Cream half gallons affected by the recall are marked with the following number on the lid: 082621222.

Brenham, Texas-based Blue Bell Ice Cream is voluntarily recalling a select lot of half gallon Butter Crunch Ice Cream produced on a specific line on August 26, 2019, in its Sylacauga, Alabama, plant because of the possibility the products may contain a foreign object.

Blue Bell discovered the issue when it was notified by a consumer of the presence of a piece of a plastic tool in a half gallon of Butter Crunch Ice Cream. The company investigation revealed the broken tool was inadvertently incorporated into the production process in a small amount of product. In an abundance of caution, the company is recalling a full day of production of this flavor from this manufacturing facility.

The Butter Crunch Ice Cream half gallons produced in Sylacauga can be identified by the nine-digit code located on the top of the packaging lid: 082621222 (near the brown rim).

The affected Butter Crunch Ice Cream half gallons were distributed in parts of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. All affected stores are directly delivered to and serviced by Blue Bell Creameries and have been instructed to remove the product from their shelves. There have been no reports of injuries due to consumption of this product to date. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the FDA.

Consumers who have purchased these items can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Those who have questions may call 979-836-7977, Monday–Friday 8 a.m.–5 p.m. CST. 

Blue Bell Ice Cream voluntarily recalled all of its products in 2015 after it was discovered they were potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
