BRENHAM, TX - We're all screaming for ice cream after Blue Bell announced it's pulling all its products from store shelves.

According to Blue Bell's website, tests came back positive for Listeria on half-gallons of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream produced at the plant here in Texas.

Since the first recall, there've been three deaths linked to Blue Bell ice cream.

"We are heartbroken over this current situation and we apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers," said Blue Bell CEO and President Paul Kruse. "We're committed to fixing the problem. We do apologize and we're going to get it right."

Stores across Texas are racing to pull the beloved ice cream from its freezers.

This has Left some businesses like Pokey O's Cookies & Ice Cream who depend on the Bell out in the cold.

"I was waiting to go cater last night at midnight, and I got a call from that customer as to whether I was going to bring Blue Bell Ice Cream or not. That was the first time I heard about the total recall," said owner Cathy Oszustowicz.

Blue Bell dragged away 36 tubs of ice cream from her store early Tuesday.

"This morning, got up early and started on my hunt for an ice cream to substitute for Blue Bell. We're hoping that Blue Bell can get back quickly, because there is no better ice cream in the country than Blue Bell."

Taking Blue Bell away from Texas is like the Lone Star State without bluebonnets, Whataburger or sweet tea!
