Following a recall of its products last year, Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries has issued another recall for select products due to Listeria concerns.

The voluntary recall covers ice cream containing chocolate chip cookie dough pieces, Blue Bell said Wednesday, adding that no illnesses have been reported.

According to Reuters, the possibly tainted ingredients were produced by a third party supplier, it said in a statement. The products with the chocolate chip cookie dough pieces were distributed in 10 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Blue Bell stopped production and distribution of ice cream to 25 states in April 2015 after the discovery of Listeria. Ten reported cases of Listeria were linked to Blue Bell frozen treats and three of those sickened later died.

Its products returned to store shelves about four months later after it overhauled production and stepped up testing to prevent another outbreak.
