66 E. coli O157:H7 Illnesses in 28 States Linked to Nestle’s Toll House Cookie

Over the last few weeks we have been investigating E. coli O157:H7 illnesses in several states. All seemed unconnected. However, common food items were uncooked Nestles Toll House Cookie Dough, Strawberries, Fruit Roll-ups and Ground Beef. The vast majority reported eating Toll House Cookies.

We now have reports that federal, state and local health officials are investigating a cluster of at least 66 cases of E. coli O157:H7 in 28 states. Reports indicate the ill people’s E. coli O157:H7 isolates share a common genetic pattern and likely a common source.

The link appears to have been made to Nestles Toll House Cookies.
