Nestle USA has issued a voluntary recall of its popular ready-to-bake Toll House cookie dough after receiving reports that pieces of rubber were found in some products.
The source of the food-grade rubber has been identified and the problem fixed, said Nestle, whose U.S. headquarters are in Arlington, Virginia. No illnesses or injuries were reported that required medical treatment, it said.
“Nestle USA is taking this action out of an abundance of caution,” the company said in a statement.
The recall covers certain batch codes of refrigerated, ready-to-bake Toll House cookie dough bars, tubs and “chubs,” which are the long plastic tubes. The products, whose batch codes begin with 9189 through 9295, were distributed in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Nestle is urging customers to throw away the relevant products and contact consumer services with proof of purchase.
“The quality, safety and integrity of our products remain our number one priority,” the company said. “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action represents to both our consumers and retail customers.”
The recall does not affect the Toll House brand’s edible cookie dough, morsels or ice cream sandwiches.
