If you’re a frequent Trader Joe’s shopper, you’ll want to check your pantry if you recently purchased cookies from the beloved grocery store.

On Friday, July 21, Trader Joe’s issued a recall for two of its popular cookies: Almond Windmill Cookies and Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Cookies. According to Trader Joe’s, the grocer was alerted by its supplier that the cookies may contain rocks (yes, you read that correctly). The two cookies have subsequently been removed from store shelves and destroyed.
