Surely you know the disappointment of biting into what you think is a chocolate chip cookie only to discover it’s an oatmeal raisin. But even raisins are better than a bunch of plastic.

Big Cookie giant Nestlé has issued a voluntary recall of its Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling due concerns it may be contaminated with plastic. Here’s what to know to avoid an unpleasant dessert.

Which cookies are recalled?

The recall includes Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge

products made between June and September 2022 with a UPC (barcode) of 050000429912. The code is located on the back of the box, centered at the bottom. The specific products were distributed in retail stores all over the United States and Puerto Rico.

“While no illnesses or injuries have been reported, we immediately took action out of an abundance of caution after a small number of consumers contacted Nestlé USA about this issue,” reads the company’s statement.

If you have Nestlé cookie dough from the same timeframe but of a different variety, it should still be safe to bake. “No other Nestlé Toll House products…are impacted by this recall,” says the statement. 

What should I do with my plastic-filled cookies?

If you have one of the recalled products, Nestlé reccomends returning the product to the retailer where it was originally purchased for a replacement or full refund.

For questions about the recall, contact Nestlé USA at (800) 681-1676 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. ET.

Hey, I actually like oatmeal raisin cookies

I suppose there’s one in every crowd. But there’s no need to get defensive. It’s not that oatmeal raisin cookies are bad per se, but when the alternative is chocolate chip, well. You can have your oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow.
