Blue Bell wants all of its products off store shelves.

The Texas-based company is voluntarily recalling all of its ice cream and frozen treat products after Listeria was detected in samples of its chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

Listeria is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause symptoms including fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea.

SOUNDBITE: CEO PAUL KRUSE, BLUE BELL, SAYING:

“We are heartbroken over this situation.”

Blue Bell’s CEO apologized to customers in a video Monday night.

The expanded recall comes after a string of recent smaller recalls by the company.

Some of its products were linked to three deadly cases of Listeria infection at a Kansas hospital where Blue Bell products were served.

The company distributes its products to 23 states and internationally as well.

SOUNDBITE: CEO PAUL KRUSE, BLUE BELL, SAYING:

“Ice Cream is a joy and pleasure to eat and it should never be a cause for concern.”

SOUNDBITE: JOE ROBERTSON, BLUE BELL CREAMERIES SPOKESMAN, SAYING:

“This is not something we’re used to and it’s unacceptable for us and we’re committed to doing the right thing”

The 108-year-old company says it will introduce additional safety and testing procedures.

If you have Blue Bell products at home, you’re urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
