A recall was issued for the 44-ounce Market Pantry White Fudge Animal Cookies sold at Target, according to a recent news release from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, adding that the product comes in a clear plastic jug formed to a bear shape.

The cookies were distributed to Target stores nationwide, the news release added. The recall is specific to lot and case number Y052722 and best by date 21FEB2023; the information is printed on the back of the bear jug on the product label, below the nutritional panel.

The cookie company, D. F. Stauffer Biscuit Co., Inc., issued the voluntary recall for the cookies because they may contain metal. Foodborne foreign objects that are hard, sharp, and large are more likely to cause severe injury or dental injury, said the recall adding that consumers who have purchased white fudge animal cookies will receive a full refund.
