Raw Deal

Put the Cookie Dough Down

No one has died yet, but the F.D.A. is reporting 66 cases of E. coli suffered by people who have eaten raw cookie dough made by Nestlé. In response, the food company has launched a voluntary recall of a near baker’s dozen of Toll House products that are probably in your freezer right now. Cookie-dough ice cream is safe. Cookie-dough tubes are not. The company said that nearly 300,000 cases of cookies dough are affected by the recall. According to the Associated Press, Nestlé owns a 41 percent share of the prepared cookie dough market.
