Chips Ahoy Cookies Recall Announced After Reports of Adverse Health Effects

Some chewy Chips Ahoy cookies were recalled after the company that produces them received reports of adverse health effects.

The voluntary recall affects certain 13-ounce packages of the cookies.

The full extent of the recall wasn’t clear but Mondelez Global LLC, which owns the brand, said that the recalled products are available nationwide. According to Alden Cartwright, a Twitter user, the cookies are sold at Walmart, prompting Walmart to send an email to people about the recall.

“The voluntary recall is being conducted because of the potential for certain product to contain an unexpected solidified ingredient,” Mondelez stated in its press release (pdf). “Some reports of potential adverse health effects have been received.”

The company did not disclose which ingredient might solidify or which health effects people complained of.

The recalled cookies are in a red, 13-ounce package that says “Chips Ahoy Chewy Cookie” and has a retail UPC of 0 44000 03223 4.

The packages have one of the following “Best When Used By Dates”: 07SEP2019, 08SEP2019, 14SEP2019, 15SEP2019.

People who have the packages should throw them away. Anyone with questions can call the company from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT, at 1-844-366-1171.

Recall Issued for Stuffed Sandwiches

A nationwide recall has been issued for stuffed sandwiches that might contain plastic inside them.

The sandwiches were produced by J & J Snack Foods Handhelds Corp., based in Holly Ridge, North Carolina.

Approximately 56,578 pounds of the stuffed sandwich products may be contaminated with semi-transparent plastic, triggering the recall, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The products were produced on Feb. 19 and Feb. 20 and sold under the Bremer brand name.

All the products contain the establishment number “EST. 27231” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

They were shipped nationwide, the agency said in an alert. The health risk for the recall was labeled “high.”
