The bags of cookies may have been incorrectly filled with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, a serious concern for anyone with peanut allergies.
On Friday, March 16th, Trader Joe’s issued a recall for their Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Cookies due to the possible presence of peanuts. The lot code of the potentially affected product is 2060, and the date codes include SELL BY 031218 through 031818.
The product is being recalled after the supplier of the cookies alerted the grocery store to the possibility that the bags were packed with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Because peanuts are not an ingredient in the Chocolate Chip Cookies, the nut is not listed in the ingredient list on the packaging. The cookies are sold in stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Northern Virginia, Vermont, and Washington, D.C.
At this time, no allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported, and all of the potentially affected cookies have been removed from store shelves. Trader Joe's is advising anyone who bought the product to discard it or return it to any Trader Joe’s location for a full refund.
