Nestlé USA is announcing a voluntary recall for some of its ready-to-bake refrigerated cookie dough products.

Nestlé, the maker of cereals, coffee, ice cream and delicious treats, announced some not-to-sweet news: The company is recalling some of its signature ready-to-bake Toll House Cookie Dough products "due to the potential presence of food-grade rubber pieces," according to a company press release.

Nestlé USA says the recall is voluntary and only impacts products distributed throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

The 26 recalled products include, bars, tubs and "chubs" — the packages shaped like tubes — and include Holiday Chocolate Chip Tree Sprinkle, Ultimate Chocolate Chip Lovers, Pinch of Grinch Cookie Dough and Monster Munch varieties.

"This recall is limited only to ready-to-bake refrigerated products below, with batch codes that begin with 9189 through batch codes that begin with 9295," Nestlé USA said.

The company adds that the four-digit batch code can be found after the "use or freeze by" date and following the number 5753 on the packaging. A full list of impacted batches can be found here.

Nestlé said it has not received any reports of consumers falling ill or becoming injured.

Nestlé USA advises those who have purchased products on the its list of potentially contaminated packages "should not prepare or consume them but should instead discard the product."

The company adds that it's working with the Food and Drug Administration on the matter.
