Choice Products USA, LLC recalls tubs of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

Choice Products USA, LLC of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is recalling 275 – three-pound tubs of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, because it may contain undeclared milk from milk chocolate chips. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of allergic reaction if they consume these products. No illnesses have been reported to date.

Three-pound Tub Peanut Butter Cookie Dough was distributed nationwide (US). The product was purchased through an online ordering system and delivered via fed ex directly to customers. No other products offered through online ordering are affected.

Some containers of the Peanut Butter Cookie Dough have been found to contain milk chocolate chips which were mistakenly included in the mixing process of the Peanut Butter Cookie Dough. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing milk chocolate chips was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an inadvertent adherence to the company’s “production and packaging procedures.”

Consumers who have purchased Premiere Choice Tub Peanut Butter Cookie Dough through online ordering may dispose of the product and contact the company.

Further information regarding the above recalls can be found on the FDA website.
