Trader Joe’s cookies typically rock, but perhaps they’ve been rocking a bit too much recently. If you notice that Trader Joe’s almond cookies have an extra crunch, it may be because the prominent grocery store chain has recalled two of its cookies for possibly containing rocks. Here is the pertinent information.
Which pastries from Trader Joe’s were recalled?
The recall is due to the potential presence of pebbles in two of their products. According to Trader Joe’s, their supplier informed them that two of their products may contain pebbles. Here are the cookies affected and their expiration dates:
A Trader Joe’s spokesperson verified that all Trader Joe’s stores in the United States carry both of these cookies and that the recall affects all stores in the United States.
In addition, they claim to have removed these biscuits from the shelves and “destroyed” them.
They make no mention of how the rocks came into their cookies, the size of the rocks, or whether or not they are edible.
What to do if you purchased Trader Joe’s recalled cookies
Trader Joe’s requests that consumers do not consume them. They request that you dispose of them or return them to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund. You can determine whether your cookies are affected by the recall by examining their “sell by” date.
If you have concerns regarding the recall, please contact Trader Joe’s customer relations Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific Time at (626) 599-3817 or via email.
