Walmart and Publix Just Pulled This Nestlé Product From Their Shelves
Baking season is in full swing, but there's now one ready-to-bake product you're going to want to double-check before popping into the oven.
In a recent press release, Nestlé USA announced that it has recalled its refrigerated Nestlé Toll House Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fudge Filling due to the potential presence of white plastic pieces. The cookie dough was sold in stores across the United States and Puerto Rico, including at Walmart and Publix.

According to the announcement, Nestlé USA issued the recall "out of an abundance of caution" after a small number of consumers alerted Nestlé USA about the issue with the cookie dough. The recalled products, which were produced between June and September 2022, bear the UPC code 050000429912. The code can be seen on the back of the package under the barcode.
Although no illnesses or injuries have been reported, consumers who still have the cookie dough in their fridges are encouraged to return the recalled product to its place of purchase for a replacement or refund.
Customers with additional questions about the recall may contact Nestlé USA at (800) 681-1676 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
"The quality, safety and integrity of our products remain our number one priority," Nestlé USA said in its announcement. "We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action represents to both our consumers and retail customers."
Unfortunately, Nestlé's stuffed chocolate chip cookie dough isn't the only item that's been pulled from the shelves recently. Earlier this month, ALDI issued a voluntary recall of its Earth Grown Vegan Traditional Falafel and Earth Grown Garlic & Herb Falafel products after they were linked to an E.Coli outbreak. In its announcement, the FDA shared that between July 24, 2022 and September 19, 2022, there have been 20 reported cases of E.Coli infections, which include five hospitalizations.
