Nestle has recalled Toll House refrigerated cookie dough after concerns rose about customer illnesses possibly linked to eating raw dough.

Didn’t your mom ever tell you not to eat raw cookie dough? It’s got egg and stuff in it.

This is a voluntary recall, and grocery stores around the country have pulled the cookie dough from shelves.

No complains have arisen about eating cooked cookies.

Recalled items include a variety of chocolate chip cookies in tube, tub and bar form and Christmas, Halloween, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, and Easter themed cookies. Though, if you’re seeing Christmas or Halloween cookie dough at your local Stop & Shop, that’s a whole different problem.

The Centers for Disease Control and several state health departments are investigating an outbreak of E. coli infections that might be linked to these products. Throw them away if you have them. If you get E. coli sickness, it will result in cramps, diarrhea, bloody stool, and could cause kidney failure, which is more common in the young and elderly.
