When it comes to the food we feed our families, we can’t afford to take any risks. So when the FDA announces a recall — whether it’s for a favorite salad dressing or our go-to chicken tenders — we need to take notice. Sometimes, however, the news is rather hard to swallow … literally.

Fans of animal crackers may want to take note that D.F. Stauffer Biscuit Co. has voluntarily recalled its Market Pantry White Fudge Animal Cookies, which are sold exclusively at Target. This recall is the result of a consumer finding metal wire inside one of their cookies, according to a release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The cookies in question are the 44-ounce Market Pantry White Fudge Animal Cookies, which are easily identifiable, thanks to their plastic bear-shaped jugs. The affected jugs each have a “Best By” date of February 21, 2023, with the lot number Y052722 and were sold at locations nationwide. No other lots or dates were affected.

While there was no report of illness or injury as a result of the metal found inside the cookie, the risk is serious to mouths and teeth. It also poses a choking hazard and can create internal injuries if swallowed, so this is definitely one recall you won’t want to drag your feet on.

If you happen to have these cookies, there is no need to panic. Just return it to the store for a full refund.
