Blue Bell Responds to Video of ‘Ice Cream Licker’
How gross! Someone taking the lid off a container of ice cream in a grocery store, licking the contents, then putting it back on the shelf.
Lexi Hazlett of KHOU 11 shared the story of Blue Bells response to this incident that is said to have happened inside a San Antonio grocery store. The exact location has not been confirmed.
Blue Bell has responded to the viral video with a statement on their website:
"We want to thank our consumers for alerting us to the recent food tampering incident. We take this issue very seriously and are currently working with law enforcement, retail partners and social media platforms. This type of incident will not be tolerated.
Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers.
During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid creating a natural seal. The lids are frozen tightly to the carton. Any attempt at opening the product should be noticeable.
We will continue to monitor this situation."
