Actually some characters like comma and semicolon should not be used inside the cookie value which used as separators for cookies.
And in your case a simple solution could be to replace "," with "%2C" and replace ";" with "%3B" before setting it as cookie value and perform vise versa when retrieving the value to get actual string.
for example:

value = value.replace(",", "%2C").replace(";", "%3B");
