Target recalls cookies for mislabeled ingredient

    Ralcorp Frozen Bakery Products Inc. is recalling cookies sold in Target because they contain whey (milk) that is not listed on the label’s list of ingredients.

    Snickerdoodles Cookies were distributed nationwide beginning in March.

    The following lots have been recalled:
