After a listeria outbreak shut down Blue Bell Creameries in April, the company announced via Twitter that it’s churning out ice cream again.
The response was mixed, but tweets sent to @ILoveBlueBell probed and joked at the elephant in the room, asking if the ice cream is safe.
An article on Yahoo! Health quoted Mike Doyle, director of UGA’s Center for Food Safety, who said that the ice cream should be safe now.
“The FDA has jurisdiction over this, and they’re going to be monitoring the whole thing,” Doyle said. “The FDA is going to be all over these Blue Bell plants for a while.”
