Schools pull Blue Bell products due to Listeria concerns

AUSTIN (KXAN) — As Blue Bell expands its recall of products due to Listeria concerns, several school districts in Central Texas aren’t taking any chances with the ice cream.

KXAN News reached out to districts in the area to see if they serve Blue Bell products and if so, have the items been pulled.

    • Austin ISD: Does not have a contract with Blue Bell.
    • Dripping Springs ISD: All Blue Bell products have been pulled.
    • Eanes ISD: No Blue Bell products on the recall list are being served. Earlier this year, Blue Bell requested that the district pull five items from their elementary school menus.

    • Hays CISD: All Blue Bell products were pulled several weeks ago.
    • Lake Travis ISD: Don’t have any Blue Bell products that were affected by the recall.
    • Leander ISD: The very first recall had some products that the district carries, but Blue Bell came by and picked those up a couple of weeks before the recall. The district ended up pulling the rest of the Blue Bell products from their schools in early April.
    • Manor ISD: Blue Bell products have been pulled. In early April, district still had several Blue Bell ice cream products.
