A 32–year-old former Houston man who “damn near died” after eating Blue Bell ice cream has filed what attorneys say is probably the first suit to stem from a massive product recall. Blue Bell Creameries officials could not be reached for comment late Tuesday, when the suit was filed in federal court in Austin. David Philip Shockley was an administrator at a Houston retirement community in 2013 when he “consumed a variety of Blue Bell ice cream products contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes,” according to the lengthy suit.
