(NBC 5 News) Some of the largest retailers in the country have decided to pull from their shelves Blue Bell Ice Cream made at an Oklahoma production plant that the company has temporarily closed.

Wal-Mart spokesman Brian Nick said Monday that the giant retailer along with Sam’s Club have pulled products made at the plant in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club continue to sell Blue Bell products made at other plants.

Grocery store chain Kroger has taken the same step.

The dairy company based in Brenham, Texas, last month issued a recall after ice cream contaminated with listeriosis was linked to three deaths at a Kansas hospital.

The foodborne illness was tracked to a production line in Brenham and later to a second line in Broken Arrow.
Blue Bell announced Friday that it had stopped all production at the Broken Arrow plant.

Company spokesman Gene Grabowski confirmed Monday that the number of large retailers pulling the ice cream has grown.
