Are Texomans Feeling the Blue Bell Blues?

It's been two days since Blue Bell Creameries recalled all of their products.

Newschannel 6 reached out to a local restaurant, Texas Best BBQ and Burgers, who has been selling Blue Bell Ice Cream to their customers for about eight years.

Texas Best BBQ and Burgers is not the only restaurant in town to pull the frozen treat, local grocery stores like Market Street have pulled the products as well.

On Wednesday, David Clement wasn't worried about the recall of Blue Bell products.

“I'm not worried about it, I guess.  I've already bought several half gallons of Blue Bell since I heard about it," said Clement.

At Market Street on Fairway in Wichita Falls, Blue Bell products have vanished from the freezers, leaving behind only price tags.

Newschannel 6 also talked to other Texomans who have hope for the creamery.

“It's an unfortunate incident for Blue Bell.  I still think they are a solid company and they will rebound.  I'm not giving up on Blue Bell," said David Currie.

“I'll buy it when it comes back on the shelves mainly because it's the best brand of ice cream; it's creamier than most and I really enjoy it," said Floyd Bria.

The owner of Texas Best BBQ and Burgers told Newschannel 6 that he has no plans to sell any ice cream at the moment, because of the recall.  Blue Bell Creameries will refund the restaurant 100-percent of their product.

Blue Bell officials say it will take a lot of work and a lot of money, but believe they will survive the recall.  The company has worked around the clock since the listeria concerns began to find and fix any sources of contamination.
