Wait to eat this till the scare is over

Nestlé’s Toll House refrigerated cookie dough is the latest on the list of tainted food product recalls.  The Food and Drug Administration in a June 19 press release , urged consumers to throw away any packages of the raw cookie dough, since it may be contaminated with E.coli, a bacterium that causes food borne illness.  In the last three months, 66 individuals became sick in 28 states, and 25 of them have been hospitalized.  Seven of those contracted a serious complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).  No one has died.

Symptoms of E.coli include abdominal cramping, vomiting and diarrhea, sometimes with bloody stools.  Children and the elderly are at highest risk for developing the more serious form of HUS, which can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.  Anyone experiencing any of these symptoms should contact their medical provider.

Nestlé USA is fully cooperating with the recall has pulled all of its refrigerated dough products off grocery shelves.  Consumers should not bake any of the cookie packages, since the bacteria could get on their hands and other cooking surfaces.

This recall comes at a time when many American homes are busy baking cookies as part of summer vacation activities.  Nestlé’s Toll House cookies are perhaps one of America’s favorite cookies products.

Consumers looking for more information can call the toll-free Nestlé’ hot line at 1-800-559-5025, or visit Nestlé’s Web site for a complete list of recalled products.
