Bimbo Bakeries USA, Inc., the parent company of baked good giant Entenmann’s, just issued a voluntary recall of the brand’s Little Bites Soft Baked Cookies in the 5 pack Mini Chocolate Chip variety in 36 states.

According to the report issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Entenmann’s products are being recalled due to the potential presence of “visible, blue plastic pieces in the individual packaging pouch.” This means that the plastic pieces aren’t baked into the cookies themselves since they were introduced during the packaging process. However, they may still result in a choking hazard. Entenmann’s issued the recall after receiving multiple reports from consumers who discovered their cookie pouches contained chunks of blue plastic.
