Nestlé USA's Baking Division Initiates Voluntary Recall

By

Nestlé USA’s Baking Division has initiated a voluntary recall of Nestlé® TOLL HOUSE® refrigerated cookie dough products. In a statement, Nestlé says it is taking this action out of an abundance of caution after being notified that the Food and Drug Administration, together with the Centers for Disease Control, are conducting an investigation into reported E. coli 0157:H7 illnesses that may be related to consumption of raw cookie dough.

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.

Consumers who have purchased these products should not consume them. Instead, Nestlé is asking that consumers return these products to their local grocer for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Nestlé Consumer Services at 1-800-559-5025 or visit its web site at www.verybestbaking.com.

A number of consumers reporting illness reported consuming raw Nestlé TOLL HOUSE refrigerated cookie dough. The company has promised to cooperate fully with the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control in this investigation.

No other Nestlé TOLL HOUSE products are impacted, including already baked TOLL HOUSE cookies purchased outside the home, all varieties of Nestlé TOLL HOUSE morsels, chocolate baking bars, or cocoa, and Dreyer’s and Edy’s ice cream products with Nestlé TOLL HOUSE cookie dough ingredients.

Nestle strongly advises consumers that raw cookie dough should not be eaten. This message also appears prominently on its packaging. Nestlé TOLL HOUSE cookies made from refrigerated dough are safe to consume when baked as directed on the package.
