Urgent Recall Notice: Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough
Posted Jun 19 2009 3:46pm
I like cookies, but I simply love cookie dough! I know I’m not supposed to eat the raw dough, but I just can’t help sneaking a spoonful, or two, here and there. Some of my kiddos have developed a love for this gooey goodness, too, but an email that I received from my friends at Nestle this morning made me re-think our cookie dough eating habit.
Nestlé USA’s Baking Division is initiating a voluntary recall of Nestlé® TOLL HOUSE® refrigerated cookie dough products. Nestlé is taking this action out of an abundance of caution after being notified that the Food and Drug Administration, together with the Centers for Disease Control, are conducting an investigation into reported E. coli 0157:H7 illnesses that may be related to consumption of raw cookie dough.
Consumers with products affected by this recall are advised to return them to their local grocer for a full refund. Any questions should be directed at Nestlé Consumer Services at 1-800-559-5025 or www.verybestbaking.com
Guess, I should be more careful about heeding the warnings on the packages, huh?
