Stewart’s Shop’s manufacturing vendor, The Cookie Factory, has issued a recall for 2,367 packages of 6-ounce Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The Cookie Factory product was distributed to Stewart’s Shops stores throughout New York and in nine Stewart’s Shops in Vermont.

The company issued the recall because the cookies may contain an undeclared macadamia nut allergen. People with an allergy or sensitivity to macadamia nuts are at risk of a serious life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products, according to The Cookie Factory, which does business as Maverick Ventures LLC in Troy, New York.

An investigation determined that a temporary breakdown in The Cookie Factory and Maverick Venture’s packaging process caused the problem.

The company urged consumers who have purchased the Stewart’s Chocolate Chip Cookies in a 6-ounce clear plastic tub “clamshell” container with a best-before date of Oct. 10 to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
