Bad news for Girl Scout cookie lovers: Some of the tasty treats have been recalled by a Kentucky bakery.

Little Brownie Bakers in Louisville is voluntarily pulling several batches of Lemon Chalets because of a bad odor and taste.

The company said the cookies are still safe to eat; they're just smelly. No one has gotten sick from the cookies, which were sold in 24 states, including Texas.

The bakery makes the cookies sold by the Girl Scouts in the Northeast Texas region that serves Dallas. The chapter the serves Fort Worth uses a different bakery.

The Girl Scouts of the USA said the recall affects about 6.5 percent of the Chalet Crème cookies produced for this season.

The smell in the bad batches is caused by a breakdown of oils in the cookies, Little Brownie Bakers said on its Web site.

The bakery is contacting the 31 Girl Scout councils that received shipments of the affected cookies.

People who experience an off taste and/or smell should call Little Brownie Bakers at 1-800-962-1718. Click here to see the lot numbers of the recalled cookies.
