Don’t eat prepackaged Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough, warn the FDA and CDC. It could be contaminated with E. coli, which causes food borne illness. The agencies have received 66 reports of illness connected with the products since March, including 25 hospitalizations and seven cases of severe complications. Cooking the dough would kill bacteria in the cookies themselves, but working with contaminated dough could spread the bacteria onto your hands and throughout your kitchen, making you and your family ill. Instead, throw these products away if you have them at home.
