Health department warns of cookie dough recall

Staff report
Rowan County health officials are urging consumers to check their refrigerators for Nestle Toll House cookie dough products that have been recalled for possible contamination with E. coli bacteria and dispose of them properly.
The products involved in the voluntary recall include all varieties of Nestle 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.
A complete list of recalled product varieties can be found at www.verybestbaking.com.
E. coli is a serious and sometimes fatal disease, so it is important to take the right steps to remove the products from your home or place of business, said Leonard Wood, Rowan County Health Department director.
“There have been two cases of E. coli illness reported in association with this recall in our state. Remember, when in doubt, throw it out but do it wisely.”
Wood said he did not know where the two cases in the state were.
The warning is based on an ongoing outbreak investigation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other federal partners and state health departments. Since March 2009, there have been 70 reports of related or associated illness across 30 states.
