Prominent Texas businessman Bass invests in Blue Bell

BRENHAM, Texas (AP) _ Blue Bell Creameries has announced an investment by a prominent Texas businessman will ``ensure'' the return of its products to the market.
 
The Brenham, Texas-based company on Tuesday announced that Sid Bass has become a partner. Blue Bell in a statement did not reveal the amount of Bass' investment.
 
CEO and President Paul Kruse says in the statement that Bass made a ``significant investment'' and the ``additional capital will ensure the successful return of our ice cream ...''
 
Bass is active in his family's oil-and-gas business.
 
The company earlier this year shut down production and issued a national recall after its ice cream was linked to 10 listeria illnesses in four states, including three deaths in Kansas.
 
Blue Bell last week announced plans test production runs at its Alabama plant.
