After vanishing from the Wii Shop Channel on October 9th, the game has returned, at least for a week: the NES version of Yoshi's Cookie will be available for purchase until 9 a.m. Pacific time on Friday, October 18th.

The official Shop Channel alert implies that the title won't be available for re-download after that point, even for those who have already purchased the title.  While every other removed title has remained available for re-download via the "Titles You've Downloaded" menu, it might be a good idea to verify that you have the game installed in either the Wii system memory or an SD card.

Full text of the Wii Shop Channel message regarding the game:

Yoshi's Cookie only available through 10/18

The Virtual Console title Yoshi's Cookie (500 Wii Points) will be discontinued at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 18, 2013.  If you'd like to purchase this title or have already purchased and would like to re-download, please do so before this time.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

(Sigh) well... At least they decided to give the players one last chance to get it. What do you think it is this time? Licensing issues with Bullet-Proof-Software? Like with the Donkey Komg Country trilogy and RARE?

The thing with DKC and Rare was never actually confirmed. They've not given a reason for why those were taken down.
