  1. Only curious about how in the world ROCKS could get into the cookie mix. Did TJ say? Any thoughts on the happening?

    • I’m told that “foreign matter” in food is a most common reason for recall, and it’s possible that some recalls that say foreign matter really mean rocks. Beyond that, this is a new one. TJ’s isn’t going to say anything beyond that — we don’t even know who the supplier is.
