Nestle Starts Shipping New Cookie Dough Products After E. Coli Recall

Rate This

New shipments of Nestle raw cookie dough products are being sent to stores in the United States, the first since E. coli fears prompted a major recall nearly two months ago.

The new Toll House cookie dough will feature a blue "New Batch" label and will include the warning, "Do not consume raw cookie dough," the Associated Press reported.

A Food and Drug Administration inspection of Nestle USA's factory in Danville, Va. has been completed. Last month, the FDA said the strain of E. coli found in a sample of cookie dough from the plant didn't match the strain associated with an outbreak that sickened people in 30 states.

While E. coli usually causes symptoms such as bloody diarrhea and dehydration, kidney failure can occur in the most severe cases, the AP reported.
