Nestle ordered a recall of its Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling.


Nestle is recalling some of its ready-to-bake refrigerated cookie dough after customers reported finding pieces of plastic in it.

The voluntary recall was initiated on Oct. 13 and is only for packages of Nestle Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling that were manufactured between June and September 2022 and distributed in the United States or Puerto Rico.

The UPC code for the recalled products, visible on the back of the package, is 050000429912. Customers can return the dough to the store where they bought it for a replacement or a refund.

Nestle said the recall was ordered after "a small number of consumers" reported seeing "white plastic pieces" in the dough. No illnesses or injuries have been reported, the company said.
Nestle added that it's working with the US Food and Drug Administration to raise awareness of the recall.
"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," the company said in a statement.

In 2019, Nestle, the world's largest food company, recalled more than 20 varieties of its Ready to Bake Cookie Dough because of possible contamination by rubber pieces
