A ConAgra recall has been made this week after some chocolate chip cookie dough was found to accidentally hold peanut butter, leading to a potential allergy scare. ConAgra is currently recalling some of its Kroger brand options and ready-made cookie dough with the aid of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the CS Monitor reports this Monday, Aug. 26.
The ConAgra recall includes some of the Kroger Break n Bake 16-oz. chocolate chip cookie dough packages (set with an expiration date of Nov. 24, 2013). A statement from the food giant has said that during the production process, rather than chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookie mix may be found instead.
While a food recall is always important for consumers, the FDA has joined with ConAgra to spread awareness of the peanut butter in place of chocolate chip recall due to the peanut butter allergies that can threaten some people.
No reported illnesses have been made as a result of the mistake so far.
Here is a list of retail stories that the problematic cookie dough was sold in, including Kroger: Dillons, Baker's, Gerbes, Foods Co., Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, Jay C, Owen's, Pay Less, Scott's, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith's grocery stores in 26 states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Supermarkets and other retail venues are calling some customers and also putting signs up in order to let consumers know of the recall.
