BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A change to the iconic Berger Cookies has apparently gone unnoticed.

For years, the fudge topping contained trans fats, and because of an FDA rule, it must be phased out by next year.

According to our media partner The Baltimore Sun, the owner of the south Baltimore bakery recently learned his long-time manufacturer already changed the recipe over the summer.

Berger has unknowingly been using the altered fudge ever since.

The owner says he’s received no complaints from customers.

  1. Just because there hasn’t been a large outcry doesn’t mean its gone unnoticed. I totally understand why they wouldn’t want to make a big deal about it because they simply aren’t as good without the trans fat. Personally, I won’t’ buy them anymore. Not enough was done to make up for the loss of such a powerful taste ingredient. Remeber when McD’s fries were “good”?
