If you were planning on baking up a batch of cookies for Labor Day, better check that your cookie dough isn't affected by a new recall! ConAgra along with the FDA, is recalling several packages of Kroger brand ready-made chocolate chip cookie dough, which mistakenly contain peanut butter.
The recall includes Kroger Break ‘N Bake 16-ounce chocolate chip cookie dough packages with the Unit UPC11110 87530 and a “Use by” date of November 24, 2013. Those packages may contain peanut butter cup cookie dough instead of chocolate chip, the company says. Eesh! Definitely anyone with a peanut allergy would want to know, right?! Thank goodness for the recall. And that no illnesses related to the cookie dough have been reported.
The affected packages were sold in Kroger, Dillons, Baker's, Gerbes, Foods Co., Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, Jay C, Owen's, Pay Less, Scott's, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith's grocery stores in 26 states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Oof.
However, Kroger stores in Louisiana and Texas were not affected, nor were stores in western Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, western Kentucky, and southern Missouri.
Shoppers who have purchased the cookie dough can return it to the store where they purchased it for a full refund. And customers with additional questions can call the ConAgra Foods customer relations line at 800-252-0634.
