The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Cookies are subject to this recall:

  • Michel et Augustin Petites Butter Cookies Dark Chocolate sold in sealed polypropylene film inside cardboard boxes, with 6 cookies per box), with a net weight of 1.58 ounces and a UPC of 812668020166, with a best-before date code of 07 2016 (found on back of the package).

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional brands and/or designs and/or variations of the recalled foods are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the FDA, the recall was initiated after the firm discovered packages that had visible pieces of nuts on top of the Butter Cookies. Subsequent investigation by the firm and the manufacturer revealed that a small quantity of packages of the Milk Chocolate and Hazelnut recipe were incorrectly packed into Dark Chocolate recipe packages. Consequently, Hazelnuts are not listed on the label.
