ORLANDO, Fla. – Toufayan Bakery, the maker of Publix GreenWise Organic Animal Crackers, announced a voluntary recall of a batch of the cookies “due to an undeclared tree nut allergen,” according to a statement from Publix.

The cookies have an expiration date of Feb. 5, 2023, and the UPC is 0-41415-12009-9, which can be found on the back of the pouch.
The recalled batch comes in 8-ounce packages and may contain coconut, which may cause a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to anyone with a allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts, according to the release.
Publix said that an investigation determined the problem was caused by a breakdown in the production and packaging process.
Customers that purchased the Publix GreenWise Organic Animal Crackers can return the product to their local store for a full refund.
