OK, seriously? They're recalling it, because people are IDIOTS. It says on the packaging that you need to bake it before eating it. Also, apparently, this all started in March, and they're just now taking action - not exactly as prompt as they want to believe they're being. I bake for my friends with this stuff all the time. We've all been eating it, none of us have been sick. Because I read the directions and BAKED IT FIRST! It's like when you see warnings on something, "Don't do this"...something that looks obvious. Yet the warning's there, so you know someone had to have done this incredibly stupid thing. But the article is here (http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/06/19/nestle.cookie.dough.warning/index.html?section=cnn_latest).

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Two federal agencies warned consumers Friday not to eat raw Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough.

The company said it is recalling an estimated 300,000 cases of the dough as a precaution after reports of food-borne illness in 28 states.

There are concerns that the premade dough may be contaminated with the bacterium E. coli 0157:H7, which causes abdominal cramping, vomiting and diarrhea, the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. Young children and the elderly can suffer more serious symptoms.

Nestle issued a statement saying, "While the E. coli strain implicated in this investigation has not been detected in our product, the health and safety of our consumers is paramount, so we are initiating this voluntary recall."

According to Nestle spokeswoman Laurie MacDonald, raw dough was one of the things the sick people reported eating.

"The health and safety of our consumers is our No. 1 priority," she said. "We felt the best thing to do is a voluntary recall."

She said the company was informed by the FDA Wednesday night "and immediately took action."

"We really want to remind consumers that raw cookie dough should not be eaten," she said.

Since March, the CDC says, 66 people have become sick in 28 states after eating raw cookie dough. Twenty-five people were hospitalized. No one has died.

The FDA and the CDC say people who have become sick after eating refrigerated Toll House cookie dough should contact their doctors.

They advise consumers to throw out all prepackaged, refrigerated Nestle Toll House cookie dough products. Retailers and restaurateurs should not sell or serve any Toll House cookie dough products, the agencies said.

The company said the market share for Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough for the most recent 52-week period was 41 percent.

The recall does not include already-baked Toll House cookies, varieties of Toll House morsels, chocolate baking bars or cocoa or Dreyer's and Edy's ice cream products with Nestle Toll House cookie dough ingredients.

My mom wanted to cook the stuffing in the Thanksgiving turkey in a casserole dish instead of inside the bird because she had read that you could get sick from putting the stuffing inside. I said, "Mom, how many years have you been making the turkey with the stuffing in the bird?" Ummmmmmm.........over 50 years. "And have you killed us yet?" PUT THE STUFFING IN THE BIRD! :chuckle:

I LOVE raw cookie dough, and will keep eating it.

But re-read the article again... The problem isn't eating raw cookie dough... its that THIS DOUGH is contaminated with Ecoli.

Yep. If you bake it there's no problem. 160 degrees is a high enough temperature to kill E. coli.

If I was the judge of that case I'd have ruled in favor of McDonald's. It's basic instinct. Coffee is hot. I'm sorry to whoever got burned like that, but there is something called responsibility.

I don't see where eating it is the problem either. :huh:

Well, with the McDonalds case, I don't think she deserved the few hundred thousand she got, but the suit wasn't unreasonable. It wasn't that the coffee was hot, it is that it was absurdly hot.

As far as this goes, just buy a different brand?

Abusrdly hot? It wasn't an ice coffee. She bought coffee...it spilled on her and she sued for Millions because the cup wasn't labled as Hot. It was ridiculous.

Her suit was later overturned to (I believe) 100,000. That's still too much for someone spilling coffee on themselves and getting burned.

Do some scalding liquid research. The coffee was about 40 degrees hotter than it should have been, which changes the time it takes to scald the skin from minutes to seconds.

Very, very few coffee makers and institutions that sell coffee have it hotter than 145 degrees, this McDonalds seemed to be one of them.

This is silly...and it will KILL Nestle's sales for at least 5 years, all because people are incredibly stupid.

The label says "don't eat raw cookie dough". Even if the dough is contaminated, you won't actually catch anything if you just FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! and don't eat the dough raw.

This is another example of exactly why this country elected Barrack Obama president.

lamest.

rhetoric.

EVER.

are you freaking kidding me? other than the weak assed attempt to turn this political, you are calling everyone on this board (and in america for that matter) who has eaten cookie dough "incredibly stupid".

stay classy, bro. :thumbsup: (id hate to know what you think about people who wear blue jeans... wait, i already know the answer to that).

those blunders aside, do you know anything about nestle?

they are a HUGE conglomerate, much like GE, georgia pacific, 3M, proctor & gamble, etc.

you think this minor setback is gonna KILL their sales for at least 5 years? :laughing: the absurdity is hilarious!
