The FDA has expanded its voluntary recall of frozen and refrigerated cookie dough products that could trigger a peanut allergy are being recalled.
Last month, California New Foods issued a voluntary recall of products that are improperly labeled and fail to address the potential for the cookie dough to contain peanut and wheat allergens.
This week, the company announced that recall has been expanded to include multiple other items.
According to the FDA, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity specific to peanuts and tree nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing the allergens.
The recall came following a consumer complaint. California New Foods have taken the products off the market, but cautioned it may still be in consumers’ homes.
The originally recalled items include:
Carolyn’s Cookie Co. frozen cookie dough in the following flavors, packaging and date codes:
Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Chip Toasted Walnut, Double Chocolate with Sea Salt, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk and Snickerdoodle in 22-ounce plastic pouches with date codes between Sept. 12 and March 29 next year.
Country Baking Company refrigerated cookie dough in the following flavors, packaging and date codes:
Chocolate Chip and Happy Trails in 24-ounce see-through cardboard sleeve with date codes between Sept. 18 and Sept. 25, 2019
