Two sweet treats have been recalled.
The first recall involves 13-ounce packages of Chewy Chips Ahoy! cookies that reportedly have an "unexpected solidifying ingredient," according to CNN. The packages of Chewy Chips Ahoy! being recalled have expiration dates of Sept. 7, Sept. 8, Sept. 14 and Sept. 15.
What exactly does that mean? In an email to CNN, a spokesman for Mondelez Global LLC, the company that owns the Chips Ahoy brand, elaborated: "In some instances, the cornstarch in our Chewy Chips Ahoy! recipe did not fully incorporate in the mixing procedure and solidified in the baking process."
Packages with other expiration dates are not affected.
A "small number" of people have reported gagging, choking or dental injuries after eating the cookies being recalled.
In a separate recall, TV station WFLA reports that two flavors of Ben & Jerry's ice cream are being pulled from freezers because of an undeclared ingredient: nuts.
The action involves bulk containers of Coconut Seven Layer Bar ice cream and pints of Chunky Monkey ice cream.
Recalled Coconut Seven Layer Bar ice cream has a UPC of 076840104246 and a best-by date of Sept. 15, 2020.
The recalled Chunky Monkey ice cream has a UPC of 076840100354 and best-by dates of Aug. 28, 2020, Aug. 29, 2020, or Aug. 30, 2020.
Ben & Jerry's says it knows of no injuries related to the undeclared nuts.
Consumers with the recalled cookies or ice cream in their homes can either toss them in the trash or return them to the store for a refund.
