March 25, 2015 -- A recall of Blue Bell Ice Cream products linked with cases of foodborne illness has been expanded to include products from the company's plant in Broken Arrow, Okla.
The initial recall included 10 products produced at Blue Bell's plant in Brenham, Texas. The expanded recall includes three flavors -- chocolate, strawberry and vanilla -- of three-ounce cups of ice cream made at the Oklahoma plant, the Associated Press reported.
One of the cups was found to be contaminated with listeriosis. The cups are not sold in retail stores, but are sold to institutions in 23 states.
The initial recall was announced after five people who had been patients at Via Christi St. Francis hospital in Wichita, Kan., became ill with listeriosis, and three of them died, the AP reported.
