— Girl Scouts across the Southeast are dealing with complaints over stale cookies.

About 10 percent of the Peanut Butter Sandwiches and the Peanut Butter Patties in an out-of-state warehouse were exposed to moisture, causing the cookies to become stale.

The North Carolina Coastal Pines Council temporarily stopped distribution of those cookie varieties, but they have resumed baking fresh batches.

Unhappy customers can get reimbursed with fresh cookies by calling the consumer hot-line at 1-800-221-1002.
