Ready-to-bake cookie dough made by global food giant Nestlé could contain bits of rubber, the company said Thursday in announcing a voluntary recall.
According to a statement from the company, this voluntary recall only covers specific batch codes, which include ready-to-bake refrigerated Nestlé Toll House Cookie Dough bars, tubs and tube-shaped “chubs.”
“Nestlé USA is taking this action out of an abundance of caution after receiving reports of food-grade pieces of rubber in some of these products. We have identified the source of the rubber and have already fixed the issue,” said the company.
The cookie dough comes in 26 similarly named products such as “Simply Delicious Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough,” “Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Tub” and “M&M’S Everyday Cookie Dough.”
Not impacted by this recall are the following products: Nestlé Toll House Morsels, Nestlé Toll House Ice Cream Sandwiches, Nestlé Toll House Edible Cookie Dough, and Nestlé Professional SKUs.
These products were distributed in the continental U.S. and Puerto Rico.
The recall is limited only to the ready-to-bake refrigerated products below, with batch codes that begin with 9189 through batch codes that begin with 9295.
No one was been injured or sickened by the food mishap, according to Nestlé.
“We are working with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on this voluntary recall and will cooperate with them fully,” the company said
