Date parseable in Playground, but not in Project

import UIKit

extension String {
  func toDate() -> Date? {
  let dateFormatter = DateFormatter()
  dateFormatter.dateFormat = "MMMM d, yyyy h:mm a"
  dateFormatter.locale = Locale(identifier: "en_US_POSIX")
  dateFormatter.timeZone = .current

  return self)

let date = "October 3, 2008 7:00 PM".toDate()


Hey guys, I’m getting inconsistent results from the above snippet. Inside of a Playground, it executes just fine and the date parses properly. In a project, the snippet fails and the date winds up nil. Any thoughts on why this could be?
