Wood Chips In Cookies? Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough Recall In US

When you bake a cookie you probably want it full of chocolate chips, not wood chips.

Nestlé ADR NSRGY announced a voluntary recall of its Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough “break and bake” bar, according to a company press release.

The company stated a small number of consumers reported the issue to the company, but it is not impacting any other products.

Consumers worried about the recall can look for packages with the batch codes 311457531K and 311557534K for the recalled products. 

Nestle also said it was working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and believed the issue was an isolated event.

Product recalls come up regularly and food products containing "extraneous material” is one of the top reasons items get recalled from shelves. Other top issues include undeclared allergens and uninspected products, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

PepsiCo, Inc.’s PEP Doritos suffered a recent recall because of an undeclared allergen according to the FDA’s website. The site stated the chips included soy and wheat allergens without properly warning consumers.

In this case, Nestle said there have been no reported injuries or illnesses because of the wood chip issue.
