Company recalls cookies sold at Trader Joe's
A company is recalling bags of cookies sold at Trader Joe's supermarkets because they may contain the wrong cookies and pose an allergy risk.
The Rhode Island Department of Health said Chris's Cookies has recalled one lot of its Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Cookies 12-ounce bags with bar code 0068 0752 after a report that peanut butter chocolate chip cookies were discovered in a chocolate chip cookie bag.
People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they eat cookies containing peanut butter.
The recalled product was distributed to Trader Joe's stores in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Northern Virginia, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Washington D.C. The affected products have stickers on the side of the bag with Lot CODE: 2060 and date codes SELL BY 031218 through 031818.
No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date. All of the affected cookies have been removed from sale.
The Health Department said consumers who bought the cookies and have a peanut allergy should not eat them. Throw them away or return them to the store for a full refund.
Consumers can contact the company at 201-288-8881.
