Missouri legal experts weigh in on Texas Ice Cream Licker

News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– A viral video shows a girl opening a container of Blue Bell ice cream, licking the ice cream inside the gallon-sized jug, and then placing the container back in the freezer.

According to Blue Bell, the incident is linked to a Walmart in Lufkin, Texas.

Earlier this morning, police said they’ve identified the girl. She’s a juvenile from San Antonio. Because she’s a minor, her identity is protected under the Texas Family Code.

Ozarks First reached out a local attorney who helped break down what qualifies as food tampering in the state of Missouri.

This is a developing story.
