Blue Bell Creameries announces today it will begin distributing ice cream to select markets on Monday, August 31ST. Blue Bell has notified the US Food and Drug Administration and state health officials in Alabama and Texas of its plan to re-enter select markets on a limited basis. The Blue Bell production facility in Sylacauga began producing ice cream in late July. Due to the limited production capacity while producing in one facility, Blue Bell will re-enter parts of 15 states in five phases. The first of the five phases will be similar to how Blue Bell began and include the Brenham, Houston and Austin, Texas, areas, as well as Birmingham and Montgomery.
