DENVER -- Blue Bell Ice Cream has returned to the Denver area after a deadly listeria outbreak two years ago.

Beginning Monday, Blue Bell will distribute its ice cream along the Front Range from Pueblo to Cheyenne.

The ice cream can be found at King Soopers, Walmart and independent grocery stores this week.

Blue Bell said 10 of its drivers came back and they are hiring at their Centennial distribution center.
