In the weeks after a viral video of a young woman taking the lid off a Blue Bell container, licking the ice cream and putting it back in the display case, videos of copycats doing the same thing are now making the rounds on social media.
Martin showed detectives a receipt for the purchase of Blue Bell ice cream, suggesting that he bought the contaminated ice cream, Cavalier said.

Nigeria were rewarded for their impressive start to the match with a goal in the 19th minute in a scrappy fashion. The long passes from the Cameroon side really exposed the Super Eagles' weakness in dealing with aerial balls.
Even though the ice cream was left untouched, Blue Bell says it is still throwing it all away. "It is illegal. It's a health risk to others". A judge is expected to set his bail during a court appearance on Monday, WAFB reports.
"We're guarding our Blue Bell ice cream for your weekend party, what a great way to cool down in the Hot Texas heat!" the store wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post. The woman seen licking the ice cream was later identified, and could now face up to 20 years in prison, and up to a $10,000 fine.

The company found the exact, compromised carton Tin Roof-flavored ice cream through analysis of the video and removed all the ice cream matching that size and flavor from the location in question "out of an abundance of caution".
Blue Bell says the original case has been referred to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department "to pursue however it deems appropriate". "No one was harmed or affected when I made the video", Golden said. Clinicians warn that it may contain rhinovirus, the flu, hepatitis B and C and Type-1 herpes, among other viruses and bacteria, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
