In a disturbing video that's turned up on social media, a woman can be seen licking the contents of a tub of Blue Bell ice cream before replacing the cover and putting it back in a grocery store freezer.
While it's unclear where the incident occurred, the video has resulted in backlash for Blue Bell Creameries as people have taken notice of the ice cream's lack of a safety seal.
Blue Bell officials say they're working with police to determine where the licking took place...
Full Blue Bell statement:
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 create 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.
Have you ever bought something you suspected of being tampered with?
