Blue Bell, Oklahoma Department of Ag Agree on Food Safety Plan for Ice Cream Plants

Thu, 14 May 2015 15:59:24 CDT

Blue Bell, Oklahoma Department of Ag Agree on Food Safety Plan for Ice Cream Plants The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry has entered into a voluntary agreement with Blue Bell Creameries outlining steps and actions that Blue Bell will take to ensure the production of safe ice cream. As Blue Bell prepares to resume production, these measures will ensure a much more rigorous food safety plan for the Blue Bell ice cream processing facilities.


The agreement was signed Thursday and includes several provisions to address Listeria. Blue Bell will retain an independent microbiology expert to establish and review controls to prevent the future introduction of Listeria. The agreement will ensure that the company's Pathogen Monitoring Program (PMP) outlines how the company will respond to presumptive positive tests for Listeria species. Blue Bell will also institute a "test and hold" program to assure that products are safe before they are shipped or sold.


The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry is responsible for the inspection of all meat, milk and egg processing facilities in the state.
