In March 2015, Blue Bell ice cream recalled 3 oz. institutional/food service cups of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream after a test detected listeria in one of the cups recovered from a Kansas hospital. Here are other notable food recalls that made headlines.

Spinach -- Fall 2006 An outbreak of food-borne illnesses caused by E. coli bacteria was initially announced in September 2006 as the FDA called for bagged spinach to be removed from shelves. Another outbreak a few months later, initially blamed on onions at Taco Bell and Taco John’s restaurants, was traced to prepackaged iceberg lettuce.
