The cookies that were affected were made in various holiday themed shapes, and were sold in a pack decorated with sprinkles or icing. The following lots of cookies affected in the recall are:
The cookies were sold at markets throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, and West Virginia. There have been consumers who reported illnesses from eating the cookies, and thus prompted the recall.

Symptoms can include: hives, itching, shortness of breath, wheezing, loss of consciousness, and death.
