The contamination is thought to have originated at the supply level.

Looks like Blue Bell’s troubles are far from over.

The ice cream producer has recalled two cookie dough ice cream flavors from 10 states because of listeria concerns. This recall comes only days after returning to grocery stores in three states after a deadly, multi-state outbreak temporarily halted its operations in 2015, Food Safety News detailed.

The contamination is thought to have originated with a supplier — Aspen Hills Inc.

“Blue Bell identified a potential problem through intensified internal testing and notified Aspen Hills,” according to a release. “Aspen Hills then issued a voluntary recall of the products supplied to Blue Bell.”

The recalled flavors — Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Cookie Two Step — were reportedly distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The recalled products can be identified by the below package information:

Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough half-gallons with the code number 082618226

Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough pints with code numbers 081518242 or 082418242
