BRENHAM, TX -- The woman behind a viral video is now being sought after by Blue Bell.
A woman appeared on a video that surfaced on Twitter and opened a half-gallon tub of Blue Bell ice cream before licking it. The video appeared on social media this past weekend and it has since been seen by the Brenham-based creamery.
"We want to thank our consumers for alerting us to the incident this past weekend of a video posted to social media showing a Blue Bell item being tampered with. We take this issue very seriously and are currently working with law enforcement, retail partners and social media platforms," the company said in a statement on their homepage. "This type of incident will not be tolerated."
According to the same statement, customers should notice any tampering to a container because the lid is frozen to the ice cream and it should create some signs of previous opening.
"Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers," Blue Bell said.
Social media, specifically Twitter users have identified the girl as xx.asiaaaa.xx on Instagram. The Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express News report the video was taken in San Antonio.
Food tampering is a felony in Texas.
