Meijer Recalls Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies For Undeclared Soy

Meijer, a chain of grocery stores that is based on Grand Rapids, Michigan, is recalling Meijer brand Ultimate Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies because the cookies contain soy, one of the major food allergens, that is not declared on the label. Anyone who is allergic to soy could have a serious reaction if they eat this product. No reactions have been reported to date, to the company or the FDA.

About 720 packages of these cookies were sold in all Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin between February 13, 2019 and February 20, 2019. The cookies are packaged in a clear plastic container with a clamshell seal.

The recalled products are Ultimate Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies in 12 count containers with UPC number 0-41250-14563-9, and Ultimate Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies in 20 one containers with UPC number  0-41250-14564-6. A routine inspection revealed the presence of soy. The product was distributed without proper allergen labeling.

If you bought these cookies and are allergic to soy, do not eat them. You can take them back to the store where you  bought them for a refund, or you can discard them.

Symptoms of an allergic reaction to a food ingredient can vary from mild to severe. Allergies can begin at any time during the life cycle. Mild symptoms include tingling or itching of the mouth, skin, face, tongue, and lips, hives, and a rash or watery eyes. Severe symptoms, that require medical treatment, include swelling of the mouth or tongue that can make breathing difficult, diarrhea, and pain or tightness in the chest.
