Mondalez Global LLC, a food and drink maker, called for the removal of 13-ounce packets from Chewy Chips Ahoy in the United States, as parts of the "unexpected strengthened ingredient" could be found.
A cookie producer in a statement on Saturday announced the voluntary withdrawal and reported that it had received reports of possible adverse health effects, although he did not specify what could cause the solidified ingredient.
"This withdrawal takes place in the United States. Consumers who have this product should not eat it" quoted the company in a notice of withdrawal.

Consumers can contact the company in 1-844-366-1171 24 hours to get more information about the download.
According to the notice, no other product of Chips Ahoy or Mondelez Global LLC is involved in the revocation.
