Which Chips Ahoy Cookies are Being Recalled?
The recall affects Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies with a "best when used by" date of September 7, 8, 14 and 15, according to an FDA Recall Notice issued on Saturday. These dates are located on the top left side of the package, near the lift tab. The packages have a retail UPC of 0 44000 03223 4, the agency said. No other Chips Ahoy products are being recalled.
If you purchased cookies that are affected by this recall, you should not eat them, and either discard them immediately or return them to the point of purchase for a refund. Customers with additional questions about the recall may contact Mondelēz Global LLC.
What is the Mystery Ingredient Behind the Recall?
Elisabeth Wenner, a spokeswoman for Mondelēz Global LLC, said to The Washington Post on Wednesday there were instances in which the cornstarch “did not fully incorporate in the mixing procedure and solidified in the baking process.”
“The vast majority of consumers have not reported adverse events," Wenner said. “However, a small number of consumers have reported gagging, choking or dental injury, but none of these reports have been confirmed at this time. We issued this voluntary recall as a precaution, as the safety of our consumers is our top priority.”
