Toll House cookie dough recalled

Toll House Cookie Dough RecallLove cookie dough? Don't eat this. Nestle voluntarily recalled the dough after several reported illnesses linked to eating the dough raw. The ever-credible FDA said there have been 66 reports of illness across 28 states since March. About 25 people have been hospitalized, but no one has died. It could be E-coli. E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure. Lovely...

I don't think you want to eat this raw anyway, it doesn't exactly resemble cookie dough. It's kind of a greasy, plasticy mixture. Of course I've downed a few too many spoons of the stuff before.

All the better reason to make some cookies from scratch.
