Cookies Brand Recalls Multiple Products Over Presence of Plastic

Even more cookies are being pulled from store shelves in Canada. Just days after consumers were alerted to a recall of ginger cookies and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) shared in a public notice on July 1 that Enjoy Life has recalled multiple bakery products, including cookies, due to the possible presence of plastic.

Per the notice, six products are currently impacted by the recall. They include 170-gram pack sizes of Enjoy Life's Soft Baked Cookies – Snickerdoodle with UPC code 8 53522 00018 4 and Best By "23/MR/10," Soft Baked Cookies – Chocolate Chip with UPC 8 53522 00019 1 and Best By "23/MR/05" and "23/MR/12," and Soft Baked Cookies – Double Chocolate Brownie with UPC 8 53522 00021 4 and Best By "23/MR/06."

The recalled products were sold throughout Canada. The CFIA said a food safety investigation is underway, and other products may also need to be recalled. 

Per the notice, "the recall was triggered by a recall in another country." On June 30, Enjoy Life issued a nationwide recall in the United States of several baked snacks products "due to the potential presence of hard plastic pieces." In a notice posted to its website, the Chicago-based company said it "became aware of this issue as a result of internal quality assurance surveillance" and the recall was "being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency." The company added that "there have been no reports of injury or illness received by Enjoy Life Foods to date related to these products."
