Some Girl Scout Lemon cookies fall short

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  If your Lemon Chalet crème Girl Scout cookies taste a little different this year, there's a reason.  

Some of them are being recalled because of a breakdown in the oil in them. The Girls Scouts office in Albany got one of the letters of notification.

There's nothing wrong with the cookies and they won't hurt you, they just might not taste as good as they usually do.

Fifteen lots have been recalled.

"It's just a quality control issue.The taste of the cookies is not up to the standards in which Girl Scouts gives out to the customers, so we were just doing a slight callback on some of those cookies," said Product Sales Manager Tiffany Stuart.

The affected cookies have been removed from the warehouse inventory. You can exchange your Lemon Chalet Cremes at Girl Scouts Council on Pine Avenue.

After testing, the company says some batches of those cookies have oils that may be breaking down, causing the strange smell and taste but say they are still safe to eat.
