Google does not always take the Meta Description you give them. It chooses itself according to its algorithm.

What you could do is:

  • Ask Google to Re-Index Your Site
  • Rethink Your Meta Description
  • Don’t Duplicate Your Meta Descriptions

The source is old but this still applies Source: Moz Blog
