The Las Vegas Sun reports that 2 cases of E. coli have been reported in Clark County, Nevada.
This comes days after the FDA issued a warning regarding Nestle Tollhouse raw cookie dough products due to the risk of E. coli. The warning cautions those who have purchased prepackaged cookie dough products to throw them away. Consumers should not even cook the dough, as the FDA warns that the bacteria may still get on consumers’ hands and on cooking surfaces.
As of June 19, 2009, all of Nestle’s prepackaged, refridgerated cookie dough products have been recalled. The products can be returned for a full refund. No other Nestle products have been affected.
