Bakery voluntarily pulls lemon Girl Scout cookies

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky bakery that makes Girl Scout cookies is pulling some batches of its Lemon Chalet Cremes because people have complained of a foul smell and taste.

Little Brownie Bakers in Louisville is one of two bakeries in the U.S. that makes Girl Scout cookies. No one has gotten sick from the stinky cookies sold in 24 states, and the company says they are safe to eat.

The bakery says on its Web site that the smell is caused by a breakdown of oils in the cookies.

The cookies were distributed in Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. 

If consumers have purchased one of the affected boxes, they are encouraged to call 1-800-962-1718 or contact www.littlebrowniebakers.com.

Again, the cookies are safe to eat and this is only a quality product recall.
