If you’ve been stocking up on Trader Joe’s snacks for your kids’ summer camp or trips to the pool, you might want to check your snack drawer. The grocery store announced today that two popular almond cookies may contain rocks. Ouch!
The two cookies being recalled, seen below, are Trader Joe’s Almond Windmill Cookies and Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Cookies. The recalled Almond Windmill Cookies have a sell-by date between October 19, 2023 and October 21, 2023, and the Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Cookies have a sell-by date between October 17, 2023 and October 21, 2023.
Trader Joe’s has removed both cookies from all of their store shelves, and they urge customers to either throw them away or bring them to the store for a full refund.
For those who are heading to Trader Joe’s to return the recalled cookies, pick up one of the amazing snacks recommended by food editor Laurel Randolph and dietician mom Sharon Lehman, RD. And if you’re itching for cookies specifically, I tried these wafer cookies back in January and still can’t get enough—they are hands down one of my favorite Trader Joe’s treats.
