Girl Scout Lemon Chalet Crème Cookies Recalled By Baker
Little Brownie Bakers, one of the two bakers that make Girl Scout Cookies, has recalled certain packages of Lemon Chalet Crème Cookies. No other Girl Scout Cookies are involved in the recall.
The baker has received 10 complaints regarding a bad taste and smell from the Lemon Chalet Cookies, and it was determined that the oils in the product were breaking down. The cookies are safe to eat, but because the quality of the cookie has been undermined, the baker is recalling the product and offering a replacement.
The number of affected cookies includes only about 6.5% of the total product purchased for the cookie season. The lot numbers involved in the recall include:
7455881 7455882 7455883
7456741 7456742 7456743
7457661 7457662 7457663
7458521 7458522 7458523
7459401 7459402 7459403
Because the product is not determined to be unsafe, the Food and Drug Administration is not involved. No illnesses have been reported from consumption of the cookies. Little Brownie Bakers has begun an investigation into the problem and will put future programs into place to prevent a recurrence.
The company is working closely with the Girls Scouts councils to facilitate communication to consumers who may have purchased the recalled cookies.
Little Brownie Bakers is based in Louisville, KY. Customers can call 1-800-962-1718 or visit the company website at www.littlebrowniebakers.com for information on a refund or replacement.
