Company recalls 7-Eleven cookies for undeclared peanuts

7-Eleven peanut butter cookie packageIn the third recall this week of 7-Eleven FRESH TO GO cookies for undeclared peanuts, Orlando-based Bakery Express of Central FL Inc. announced today that it is recalling some two-cookie packages distributed to 7-Eleven convenience stores in Florida.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products, this latest recall stated. Earlier this week similar cookies were recalled in New York and California.

The affected cookies are packed in a clear package film, two cookies per package, labeled “Fresh To Go” and have “best buy” date codes Friday, 04/22/16, Saturday, 04/23/16, Sunday, 04/24/16 on the front label, the company stated. These recalled products are as follows:

7-Eleven Fresh To Go Sugar Cookie made with M&M chocolate candy, UPC: 052548558765

Product Description Lot Code Best By Dates
2 pack cookies 041916 4/24/16
042016 4/24/16

7-Eleven Fresh To Go Peanut Butter Cookie, UPC: 052548585570

Product Description Lot Code Best By Dates
2 pack cookies 041916 4/24/16
042016 4/24/16
042116 4/24/16

No illnesses have been reported to date.

This recall was initiated after one of the Florida company’s suppliers, CSM Bakery Solutions, reported that three different pre-bagged dry cookie mix bases may contain undeclared peanuts. The cookie bases were used in production and distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. The company and the ingredient supplier continue their investigation to determine the cause of the problem, according to the recall notice.

Consumers who have purchased the above “best buy” date codes of the affected cookies are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-255-0711, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.

The two other related cookie recalls were announced by Fullerton-based Bakery Express of Southern California on Wednesday and Glenn Wayne Wholesale Bakery of Bohemia, NY, on Tuesday.
