SACRAMENTO (CBS13) ―  An Northern California cookie company with operations in Sacramento has closed its doors for good.

After operating in Oakland for 92 years, Mother's Cookies shut down when its parent company filed for bankruptcy protection Monday.

Plant officials told workers that operations would cease and cookies would no longer be made at the plant.

The offices in Sacramento on N. Market Boulevard are also shutdown.

In filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, company officials cited rising prices for raw materials and fuel.

The closure comes after Mother's had shifted its baking and distribution operations to plants in Ohio and Canada in 2006.

Those were good cookies until they started lacing them with soy products.

One of the last great American companies is now gone... I know cookies are not healthy, but I loved mother's cookies... Will America have any decent companies left standing at the end of this recession/depression or whatever you call it?
