ConAgra Recall: Kroger 16-Ounce Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

ConAgra Foods issued a recall Monday for its Kroger chocolate chip cookie dough after concerns were raised about peanut allergies.

Though no illnesses have been reported, the company pulled packages of its Kroger Break 'N Bake 16-ounce chocolate chip cookie dough because the bags may actually contain peanut butter cup cookie dough, according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration press release.

The recalled items were sold in Kroger, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Foods Co., Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, Jay C, Owen's, Pay Less, Scott's, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith's stores in 26 states. It's not clear how many packages are affected, but to be safe, consumers with peanut allergies should get rid of any Kroger cookie dough with a use-by date of Nov. 24

"People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product," the release said.

A company spokesperson said the mix-up occurred when the peanut butter cookie dough was mislabeled as regular chocolate chip.

"Customers who may have purchased the affected products will receive register receipt messages and/or automated phone calls. Kroger is also placing signs in stores," the company said.

Those who bought the peanut butter bags can return them to the stores they were purchased from for a full refund.
