Packages of Tasty Chips Ahoy! Cakes sold at Walmart and other retailers nationwide are recalled because many contain an "unexpectedly solidified ingredient." Nabisco's parents Mondelēz Global issued the recall on Tuesday after receiving reports of "potential negative health effects", it said in its recall notice.
A spokesperson for the company said in an email to CBS MoneyWatch that the corn starch used to make the cookies sometimes not properly blended and solidified in the baking process.
"The vast majority of consumers have not reported unwanted events regarding the product in the four code dates that have been recalled," said the Mondelēz spokesman. "However, a small number of consumers have reported gagging, choking or dental injury, but none of these reports have been confirmed at this time."
The food giant refused to say how many packets of cakes are recalled. The recall involves 13 ounce packages of one of four best-by dates: September 7, 2019, September 8, 2019, September 14, 2019 and September 15, 2019.
Consumers are not advised to eat the product. Those looking for more information can call the company at (844) 366-1171 for more information.
