Throw out that refrigerated Nestles TOLL HOUSE Cookie Dough! And don’t eat it raw or bake it.
The Food and Drug Administration has announced a voluntary recall of all varieties of Nestle® TOLL HOUSE® refrigerator cookie dough. While no e. coli bacteria have been actually found in the dough, there have been a number of reports of consumers becoming ill after eating the raw dough.
Baking the cookies may not eliminate the risk of contamination because cooks may get bacteria on their hands or on other kitchen surfaces.
Nestle and the FDA emphasize that people should never eat raw cookie dough or other foods that are intended to be baked or cooked before eating.
The products involved in the voluntary recall include all varieties of Nestlé TOLL HOUSE refrigerated Cookie Bar Dough, Cookie Dough Tub; Cookie Dough Tube; Limited Edition Cookie Dough items; Seasonal Cookie Dough and Ultimates Cookie Bar Dough. A complete list is available from Nestle. It includes all varieties, not just chocolate chip.
