A woman has gone viral after her friend uploaded a video of her performing a disturbing dare in which she licked the top of the ice cream before putting the full tub back in the freezer in a supermarket.
While the unidentified woman found the challenge pretty amusing, the social media users have been outraged ever since the video went viral.
In the short footage, the woman is seen smiling from ear to ear while licking the top of the ice cream in a tub. She then puts the lid back on and places the container inside the freezer for the next customer to pick.
After the video was uploaded on Twitter and viewed over 8 million times, people suggested that the woman in question should be arrested for tampering with food and endangering other customers.
While the case is still being investigated, some reports have claimed that the woman in the video is from San Antonio and that the video was taken in a local Walmart.
Following the social media uproar, the ice cream brand involved in the incident responded to the public.
“We want to thank our consumers for alerting us to the recent food tampering incident. We take this issue very seriously and are currently working with law enforcement, retail partners and social media platforms. This type of incident will not be tolerated,” the Blue Bell Creameries announced.
“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.
“During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid creating a natural seal. The lids are frozen tightly to the carton. Any attempt at opening the product should be noticeable. We will continue to monitor this situation.”
