Nestle's voluntarily recalls refrigerated Toll House cookie dough



Ugh! I just bought a bunch of this BOGO at the grocery a week ago. Apparently, folks have not listened to Mom_nestle their Mommas and are eating the cookie dough raw. According to this story, the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are investigating the possibility of E. coli in the raw dough. Nestle has recalled it and the FDA is recommending that consumers throw away any prepackaged refrigerated Nestle Toll House cookie dough in their homes. Throw it away? Can someone tell me how to get a refund?

Here's what Nestle's says to do with the dough to get your dough: "Consumers who have purchased these products should not consume them. Instead, we are asking that consumers return these products to their local grocer for a full refund."

There have been 66 reports of illness across 28 states since March. About 25 people have been hospitalized, but no one has died, the MSNBC story said.

The recall includes refrigerated cookie bar dough, cookie dough tub, cookie dough tubes, limited edition cookie dough items, seasonal cookie dough and Ultimates cookie bar dough. It does not affect any other Toll House products.

First, peanut butter in crackers, then pistachios and now this. Pretty soon we aren't going to be able to eat anything.
