INDIANAPOLIS -- With a listeria outbreak in the rearview mirror, Blue Bell Ice Cream is back in Indiana stores. 

The company pulled all of its product in April 2015 after samples of the ice cream tested positive for listeria, resulting in three deaths. Blue Bell now says it's time to return to Indiana.
