Food maker Nestle USA’s baking division is initiating a voluntary recall of Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough products. The recall comes after the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control began an investigation into 66 incidents of e. coli-related illness in which a number of consumers reported getting sick after consuming raw Nestle’s Toll House cookie dough.
The company has advised consumers not to buy or consumer any Toll House refrigerated Cookie Bar Dough, Cookie Dough Tub, Cookie Dough Tube, Seasonal Cookie Dough, Limited Edition Cookie Dough items and Ultimates Cookie Bar Dough. Consumers can return the products to local retailers for full refunds.
Packaging for these products already includes warnings that raw cookie dough should not be eaten, and Nestle, as well as the FDA reiterated this in press statements.
In the company’s statement, Nestle said it would continue to cooperate with the FDA and CDC, and said that no other Nestle Toll House products are impacted, including Toll House morsels, chocolate baking bars or cocoa.
