LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Listeria bacteria was found in Blue Bell Ice Cream's Oklahoma plant as far back as March 2013, according to test results released Thursday by the government.

The company continued to ship ice cream produced in that plant after the FDA discovered 16 positive tests for listeria on equipment and in ice cream from 2013 to 2015.

Three deaths are now linked to the ice cream.

The company recalled all of its products last month.
