Nestlé USA has issued a recall for certain batches of their chocolate chip cookie dough “break and bake” bars after traces of wood chips were found in some of the products. The company’s announcement on August 10th detailed the recall of two batches of their 16.5 oz. Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough “break and bake” bar products. These recalled batches were manufactured on April 24 and 25, 2023, and were distributed within the United States, according to the press release.
The recall specifically applies to the products bearing batch codes 311457531K and 311557534K. Consumers are urged to refrain from preparing or consuming these products and instead return them to the retailer from which they were purchased for a replacement or refund. Fortunately, no cases of illness or injuries have been reported in connection with this issue.
Nestlé USA is actively collaborating with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in a voluntary effort to ensure the safety and quality of their products. This recall is isolated to the affected batches and does not involve other Nestlé Toll House products, including other varieties of refrigerated cookie dough in “break and bake” bars, rolls, or tubs, as well as Edible cookie dough.
In a statement, the company expressed their commitment to prioritizing the quality, safety, and integrity of their products. They apologized for any inconvenience this situation might cause to their customers and retail partners. For further assistance, Nestlé USA encourages individuals to reach out to their customer service at (800) 681-1678. The customer service is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET.
This recall follows a previous incident in October 2022 when Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling products were voluntarily recalled due to the possible presence of white plastic pieces. Back then, no instances of illness or injuries were reported.
