Huge Confection Company Recalls Cookie Dough Due to Contaminant
(NewsReady.com) – Toll House is one of the most popular cookie brands in the country. Its refrigerated cookie dough is easy and convenient for people who want a sweet treat without all the work. However, those who bought it recently might need to take it back to the store where they purchased it.
On October 13, Nestlé USA issued a voluntary recall for its Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling. It produced the products between June and September 2022, and they were distributed in Puerto Rico and the continental US.
According to the recall, the company is concerned white plastic pieces might have gotten into the cookie dough while it was being produced. Customers have contacted Nestlé to let them know about the material in the dough they bought. Fortunately, there are no reports of anyone getting sick.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating the issue, and the company vowed to fully cooperate with the probe. In its recall notice, Nestlé stated, “quality, safety and integrity of [its] products remain [its] number one priority.” The company also issued an apology for “any inconvenience” the recall may have caused. A similar recall happened in 2019 when rubber was found in the cookie dough.
Those who purchased the dough can return it to the store where they bought it and get a refund.
