You might want to double-check what you’re looking for in your cookie jar! A brand of baked goods has just had some of its products recalled across Canada that may have extra texture that you don’t want to find in your food.
On Friday, July 1, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued an opinion that some of Enjoy Life’s products are being withdrawn from the market “due to the possible presence of pieces of plastic”.
So anyone who has the Enjoy Life Soft Baked Cookies in Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Brownie or Snickerdoodle flavor (170 grams); Enjoy Life Chewy Bars with chocolate chip and caramel flavor (165 grams); or Enjoy Life Breakfast Ovals in Chocolate Chip and Banana or Berry Medley (250 grams) may want to check their UPC codes and possibly discard or return them.
Now, these are not all the baked goods listed: these are only certain products with an expiry date between January 18 and March 12, 2023. The UPC codes of the affected lots can be found in the CFIA list.
All of the recalled products were sold across the country, both in-store and online. They are also being recalled in the United States
The company announcement that “out of an abundance of caution” they have decided to voluntarily recall some of their baked snacks across North America because there may be hard plastic pieces in them.
“This is not allergen related and no other Enjoy Life products are affected by this voluntary recall,” the statement said.
So far, no injuries or illnesses have been reported from the recalled foods.
