In an ironic twist, Atlanta-based company Bella Cucina has recalled its ‘Death by Chocolate’ cookies because of undelcared walnuts. People who have an allergy to walnuts are at-risk for life-threatening allergic reactions if they eat these products.
According to the FDA, the Death by Chocolate cookies come in a 6 ounce bag with a sleeve label. The UPC code for this product is 19193 00020. These cookies have a three-month shelf life.
The cookies being recalled were made on June 14, 2007 and also July 5, 2007. No illnesses have been reported thus far. The cookies were distributed to several cities, including Atlanta. For a refund or replacement, you may contact Bella Cucina directly at 678-539-8400.
