ConAgra Food Inc. has just announced a recall of some Kroger’s Break ‘N Bake chocolate cookie dough packages because of a peanut contamination. Any parent who has a child with food allergies know that you’ll go to the ends of the earth to keep your child from having an allergic reaction, looking over ingredients with exact precision. Considering the severity of some peanut allergies, this recall is serious business.
According to the press release on the FDA's website, that the peanut butter cup cookie dough was mistakenly packed in the packages, which poses an obvious threat to those with peanut allergies. The good news is no illnesses have been reported thus far.
The recall is limited to 16 ounce packages of Kroger's Break 'N Bake Chocolate Chip cookie dough, and concerned customers should look for the unit UPC code ‘1110 87530’ and a use by date of 24NOV13C21.”
Packages were sold in the following stores, and consumers have been advised to return the cookie dough for a full refund: 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 stores in 26 states.
One mom shared her terrifying story of inadvertently giving her son peanuts despite his severe allergy on the Scary Mommy blog yesterday, and she opens up about the heartbreak she went through in saving him. We certainly hope everyone who might be affected by this recall gets wind of this recall before any accidents happen.
