Final Chocolate Recall of March 2018

One or two weeks until Easter (if you are Christian and depending on whether you are Western or Orthodox) and I bet some of you will be giving or receiving something chocolate or chocolatey to celebrate today whether this is a religious or a secular holiday for you. I'd love to read your comments about how you plan to celebrate this holiday wor mark the season for other reasons.

Sadly, before I can read your stories, I have a recall to share with you all.

---------- Easter 2018 Recalls of Chocolate ----------

Chris's Chocolate Chip Cookies Recall

Chris’s Cookies has recalled one lot of its Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Cookie 12 Oz (340g) Bags (Barcode#: 0068 0752) after a report that Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies were discovered in a Chocolate Chip Cookie Bag, and therefore the product may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat this product.

The recalled product was distributed to Trader Joe’s stores in ONLY the following states: CT, DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, Northern Virginia, PA, RI, VT and Washington D.C. The affected products are stickered on the side of the bag with Lot CODE: 2060 and date codes SELL BY 031218 through 031818

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a bag labeled as Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Cookies instead contained Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. While there is a warning statement on the label that the product may contain traces of peanuts, “peanuts” is not listed as an ingredient.

No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date. All of the affected Chocolate Chip Cookies have been removed from sale and destroyed. Consumers, who have purchased the affected product and have a peanut allergy, please do not eat it. Discard the product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Contact the company at 201-288-8881 with any questions, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT.
