Trader Joe's Snickerdoodle Cookies Are Part Of A Massive Recall

Enjoy Life Foods has launched a recall of several products that now include the popular Trader Joe's Snickerdoodle cookies as well. The original recall was announced on June 30 and shared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approximately two weeks later. A wide variety of Enjoy Life Foods branded products were recalled for possibly containing pieces of hard plastics. The Enjoy Life Foods brand is based on an allergy-friendly image. It describes its products as "made with allergy-friendly love."

It says that the presence of the plastics was discovered during an internal quality assurance review and that there have been no related injuries or illnesses at this point. The recalled products were several varieties of Enjoy Life's soft baked cookies, breakfast ovals, chewy bars, and brownie bites. The complete list of these products, including their expiration dates and retail UPCs, can all be found at Snack Safely.

Any contaminated products should be disposed of immediately

Enjoy Life Food's original recall was only for products bearing its brand name, but it recently added Trader Joe's snickerdoodle cookies to the list of recalled products (via Snack Safely). Anyone who has these products in their homes should immediately dispose of them while holding onto the packaging for a refund from the company.

Similar to other Enjoy Life Foods products, these cookies are branded as being ideal for those with "sensitivities to wheat, milk, eggs, soy, and peanuts," per What's Good at Trader Joe's. The site shares that the snickerdoodles are a tasty treat, that taste homemade, and are safe for gluten-sensitive people and those following a vegan diet to consume.

Eater reports that Trader Joe's outsources the production of most of its store-branded products. In fact, it apparently works quite hard to keep its sources under wraps. This secrecy has inspired plenty of sleuths like those at HuffPost to sniff out some of the popular grocery chain's suppliers. Trader Joe's frequently works with companies that manufacture the same, or similar products which is likely why it chose to work with Enjoy Life Foods to craft an allergy-friendly cookie.
