Nestle Just Recalled Tons of Toll House Cookie Dough—Here’s What You Need to Know
Is your cookie dough affected? Check your fridge ASAP!
Nothing smells better than the fresh aroma of chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven. However, while you might know that you shouldn’t eat raw cookie dough, you might need to keep an eye out for something else in your favorite pack of Nestle’s Toll House Cookie Dough.
On October 17, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a recall of Nestle Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling. The cookie dough recall affects consumers nationwide—here are all the details.
Why Was the Recall Issued?
Nestle USA announced the recall on October 13 after consumer reports of “the potential presence of white plastic pieces.” The company stated that only “a small number of consumers” contacted the company about the issue and that there had been no reports of illness or injury. However, they have issued a voluntary recall as a precaution.
This is not the first time Nestle has had a recall for this brand. Back in November 2019, the company had a massive cookie dough recall of 26 types of Nestle cookie dough due to the presence of rubber pieces in the dough.
How Do I Know If I Bought a Recalled Product?
This recall only affects Nestle Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling produced from June through September 2022. It also only affects consumers in the United States and Puerto Rico.
The product also has a specific UPC code—050000429912—that is located on the back of the recalled products.
What Should I Do Next?
According to the FDA, consumers who have purchased the product should not prepare or consume the cookie dough under any circumstance. The FDA also advises that consumers should return the product so it can be replaced or to receive a refund.
Consumers can contact Nestle USA Monday through Friday at (800) 681-1676 any time from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET with any questions.
