CHICAGO - A healthy food brand selling snacks and baked goods has expanded a voluntary recall of certain products sold in many major U.S. retail stores, including Trader Joe’s and Walmart, due to the potential presence of "hard plastic pieces."
Enjoy Life Natural Brands LLC first announced the recall on June 30 after an internal investigation revealed the possible issue in certain soft-baked cookies, chewy bars, and brownie bites. On July 20, the Chicago-based company expanded the recall to include an additional product, as well as more "best by" dates on four already-recalled products.
The recalled food products have "best by" package dates between Sept. 24, 2022, and March 13, 2023. They were sold in several major retail stores and online in the U.S. and Canada, according to the company.
Enjoy Life Natural Brands said it hasn’t received any reports of injuries or illnesses, and the move was made "out of an abundance of caution."
Customers who have any of the recalled snacks are encouraged not to eat them. The snacks should be thrown away, but hold on to the available packaging and call the company. For more information about the recall and how to get a refund, call 1-855-543-5335.
