Blue Bell to begin intensive cleaning and training, vows “fresh start”

BRENHAM, TEXAS - On Monday, April 27, Blue Bell Ice Cream will embark on an intensive cleaning  program while it simultaneously conducts a new training program for its employees at all four production facilities with locations in Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas.

After a thorough review of operations and discussions with an expert microbiologist, it was decided this cleaning and training program will greatly benefit Blue Bell as it moves forward.  Ice cream being produced this week will be used for testing and gathering baseline data and will not be sold to the public.

Training and future improvements at Blue Bell include:

   - Highly aggressive cleaning techniques

   -Increased actions focused on sanitation and cleanliness

   -Strengthening of standard operating procedures

   -Enhancements to its preventative maintenance program

   - Equipment design changes  

“We’ve always worked to make the very highest quality ice cream,” said Blue Bell CEO and President Paul Kruse. “We intend to make a fresh start and that begins with intensive cleaning and enhanced training.  This is a paradigm shifting event at Blue Bell and we want to put in place new systems to drive continuous improvement.”
