It turns out a San Antonio woman has been ID’d as the person who opened a grocery store freezer case and licked a Blue Bell Ice Cream.
She put the tainted container back in the freezer…Gross!
The bad news for this woman is that Blue Bell Ice Cream Company is pressing charges. Doing this is a felony in Texas!
This is a big deal and it should be.
What kinda psychopathic behavior is this?! pic.twitter.com/T8AIdGpmuS

She should be given maximum punishment because she’s started a trend of other people doing this!

Blue Bell released a statement about the incident:
“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 the lid creating 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.”
It’s time to wrap all ice cream in plastic. We’d like to know if you have a solution to this gross trend. How would you solve this ice cream drama?
