D.F. Stauffer Biscuit Co has issued a voluntary recall of 44oz Market Pantry White Fudge Animal Cookies because of the possibility that they contain metal. The product comes in a clear plastic jug formed to a bear shape. The recall affects only the following Best By Date, Lot Numbers and time stamps printed on the back side of the bear jug.
Best By Date: 21FEB2023 UPC code:
Jug Lot Numbers: Y052722
Case Lot Number: Y052722 085239817698
Time Stamp: From 15:00 to 23:00
The products were distributed to Target stores nationwide, and the company has noted that no other lots of products are affected.
The recall first began when metal wire was found inside a portion of the cookies. Foodborne foreign objects that are hard, sharp and large like metal are more likely to cause serious injury or dental injury to the consumer. Foodborne foreign objects that are flexible, not sharp and smaller in length are more likely to cause minor injuries such as transient choking or small lacerations in the gastrointestinal system.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled product are urged to stop consuming the product and return it to place of purchase for a full refund.
