Nutrisystem Everyday, LLC, Nutrisystem, Inc.’s retail division, is recalling its Nutricrush Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar, manufactured by Noble Foods, Inc. This recall has occurred due to the bar containing a chocolate chip cookie dough ingredient supplied by a third party supplier, which advised that its ingredient might potentially contain Listeria monocytogenes (see our Listeria Hysteria piece).
Luckily, this particular Cookie Dough Bar had very limited distribution of 1 lot/455 cases to ShopRite and Hannaford stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and online through Amazon.com and Walmart.com. No other code dates of this product or other Nutrisystem products in retail are affected and no Nutrisystem ‘direct to consumer’ product has been impacted either.
This voluntary recall covers the Nutrisystem Nutricrush Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar. The bar was sold as a 5-count carton. The product can be identified by the UPC 6 32674 85579 4, an “Enjoy by” date of Aug 22, 2017, and Lot Code NF082216A. All code information is found on the back panel of the carton.
To note, Listeria monocytogenes are organisms that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
It is suggested that consumers do not eat the recalled product, but either discard the product or return it to the ShopRite or Hannaford from where it was purchased for a full refund. Twenty-four customers of Amazon.com and Walmart.com have already been identified and instructed to discard the product for a full refund. No illnesses have been reported.
Consumers seeking information may call toll-free 1-866-293-8118, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m., and 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, Eastern Daylight Time.
