J&M Foods voluntarily recalled nearly 1,500 7-ounce bags of Favorite Day Lavender Shortbread Cookies after a packaging error placed different cookies containing a possible allergen inside the bags.
In a news release on Tuesday, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration said the Little Rock, Arkansas-based company erroneously packed chocolate chip cookies inside 1,464 bags earmarked for the shortbread cookies.
Because of the error, the packaging does not list the presence of soy or eggs, which are allergens, the FDA stated. People who are allergic to or have sensitivity to soy or eggs are at risk of a severe reaction if they eat the product, according to the FDA.
J&M was alerted to the problem by a consumer, the FDA said. The lot number for the cookie product is BB 18-APR-2023.
Target was also notified and has removed the product from its store shelves and its online site.
No illnesses have been reported due to the switch.
Consumers who are not allergic to soy or eggs can still eat the chocolate chip cookies. However, those with allergies can call J&M Foods at 800-264-2278 or Target at 800-440-0680 to receive a refund.
