Nestle has recalled all of its Toll House dough.
Wired PR News – Cookie maker Nestle has voluntarily recalled their Toll House refrigerated dough due to a bacteria outbreak. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has in an investigation found a link between dough made by the company and several individuals across the U.S. becoming ill. Twenty-five people have reportedly been hospitalized due to E. coli contamination.
As noted in the report, the recall follows a warning being issued previously by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) not to consume, serve, or sell the cookie dough products. Individuals who have bought Toll House dough may reportedly return the items to the place of purchase for a full refund.
As further noted by the AP, the risks of illness from the bacteria is associated with consuming raw dough, however, consumers are advised against eating that which has been cooked as well.
