Animal cookies sold at Target stores under the Market Pantry brand are being voluntarily recalled because they may contain metal.

The 44-ounce Market Pantry White Fudge Animal Cookies, made by D. F. Stauffer Biscuit Co., Inc., were sold in a clear plastic jug formed into a bear shape.

The company says a metal wire was found "in a portion of the cookies," which were distributed to stores nationwide, according to an announcement by the company and the Food and Drug Administration.

The recall affects only the following best by date, lot numbers, and time stamps, printed on the back side of the bear jug on the product label, below the nutritional panel.
