Police Believe They’ve Identified Woman Who Licked Blue Bell Ice Cream
A few days ago a video went viral of a woman in Texas licking a tub of Blue Bell ice cream before putting it back in the Walmart store's freezer. It now appears that police in Lufkin have identified the woman.
Though the investigation is ongoing, detectives for the Lufkin Police Department believe they know the identity of the culprit. They have not released her name yet, but say "appropriate charges will be filed."
Lufkin Director of Public Safety Gerald Williamson said he recommended that Blue Bell remove products from the Lufkin Walmart shelves until their investigation is complete.
Since the video went viral, a lot of people have asked the question, "why doesn't Blue Bell seal their lids?"
Officials with Blue Bell said that during production their half-gallon ice creams are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid to create a natural seal. This makes any tampered product noticeable.
