According to a posting on the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website, Weight Watchers has announced a voluntary recall of approximately 100,000 cases of Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae frozen desserts that may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

The cookie dough is supplied by Aspen Hills, Inc Cookie Dough Pieces. According to Weight Watchers, the problem was identified when the supplier of the cookie dough pieces used as an ingredient in Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae frozen desserts, reported positive test results for the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

Weight Watchers said they started an investigation and initiated the recall as a "precautionary measure".

The recalled product was distributed to retailers in the U.S. only. Weight Watchers said no other sizes, varieties or code dates of Weight Watchers Smart Ones products are included in the recall.
