Mondelēz Global LLC is recalling 13-ounce packages of Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies due to an “unexpected solidified ingredient,” the company said.
This recall on Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies extends throughout the country and pertains to Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies that have a “best when used by” date of September 7, 8, 14, and 15. When looking for these dates they can be found on the top left side of the package, near the left tab. The packages will have a retail UPC of 0 44000 03223 4.
The cookies should not be consumed, according to Mondelēz.
Company representative, Elisabeth Wenner wrote in an email, “In some instances, the cornstarch in our Chewy Chips Ahoy! recipe did not fully incorporate in the mixing procedure and solidified in the baking process.”
“The vast majority of consumers have not reported adverse events with respect to the product in the four code dates recalled. However, a small number of consumers have reported gagging, choking or dental injury, but none of these reports have been confirmed at this time,” Wenner said. “We issued this voluntary recall as a precaution, as the safety of our consumers is our top priority.”
At this time no other Chips Ahoy products are affected by the recall. For more information about the recall, contact the company at 1-844-366-1171.
