The Girl Scouts are telling people several lots of the Lemon Chalet cookies may have a funny taste. So the organization is offering to give consumers their money back. (Late Friday I learned this does not affect customers in Austin, TX--check out the full list of cities involved below.)

Only the Lemon Chalet Creme cookies are involved in this. There is nothing wrong with the cookies. The Girl Scouts say it’s just a chemical breakdown of the oil in the cookies may make them taste funny.

Little Brownie bakers which manufactures the cookies said, "We have fifteen affected lot codes distributed to 31 of the 81 Girl Scout councils in a variety of states."

Update: I just heard back from the company about which cities and states may have received these cookies:

Approximately 24 states received the affected lots of Lemon Chalet Creme cookies in the cities and surrounding areas listed below.:
