A packaging mix-up has prompted a recall from Blue Bell Ice Cream.

The ice cream manufacturer is recalling select lots of Rocky Road ice cream because the packages may in fact contain the Cookies 'n Cream flavor. That ice cream contains the unlisted allergens soy and wheat, which may present a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction risk to people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these ingredients.

The recalled ice cream was sold in a pint-size Rocky Road container with a Cookies 'n Cream lid. Date code 022918576 can be found on the bottom of the cylindrical container.

The recalled pints were produced at the company's Brenham, TX plant and distributed to retail locations in Louisiana and Texas.

No illnesses have been reported to date. There are no safety concerns associated with the product unless an individual has a sensitivity to soy or wheat.

Consumers who have purchased these items can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
