Nestle recalls cookie dough due to risk of contamination

Wood fragments might be in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough 'break and bake' bars.
Two batches of Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar have been recalled due to wood fragments: batch numbers 311457531K and 311557534K.

Nestlé USA is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough “break and bake” bar products due to the presence of wood fragments, the company has announced.

The recall is isolated to two batches of the product, which were produced on April 24 and 25, 2023. The dough was distributed to retailers in the U.S. Nestle USA said the recall does not involve any other Nestle Toll House products, including other varieties of refrigerated cookie dough in “break and bake” bars, rolls, or tubs, or edible cookie dough.

"While no illnesses or injuries have been reported, we are taking this action out of an abundance of caution after a small number of consumers contacted Nestlé USA about this issue," the company said.

"We are working with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on this voluntary recall and will cooperate with them fully. We are confident that this is an isolated issue and we have taken action to address. The quality, safety and integrity of our products remain our number one priority. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action represents to both our consumers and retail customers."

Consumers who purchased the 16.5-ounce packages with batch codes 311457531K and 311557534K should not prepare or consume the product and should return it to the retailer where it was purchased for a replacement or refund. For any further support, consumers can contact Nestlé USA at 800-681-1678 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. EST.
