Nestle announces voluntary recall of cookie dough


ROCKVILLE, Md. Regulators are warning consumers not to eat a brand of prepackaged cookie dough due to the risk of E. coli contamination.

The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that any packages of Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough should be thrown away, and cooking the dough could lead to contamination if the bacteria gets on the hands.

In its announcement of a voluntary recall of the products, Nestle said the recall did not affect already-baked Toll House cookies purchased outside the home, Toll House morsels, chocolate baking bars and cocoa or ice cream with Toll House cookie dough sold under the Dreyer’s and Edy’s brands.
