Local Newspaper Reports Nestle Is Shutting Down Production At Its Danville Cookie Dough Plant

The Danville News just put this report on its website:

Nestle USA has stopped production in half of its Danville, VA  plant following a Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration investigation that the company’s cookie dough may be connected to a recent E. coli outbreak.

“The Danville facility makes the majority of our Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough,” said Roz O’Hearn, spokeswoman for the company.

The Danville plant also makes refrigerated pasta, which has not been connected to the E. coli outbreak. Workers will still produce the pasta, but the company is anticipating temporary layoffs for the workers who make the cookie dough in Danville, O’Hearn said.

No other Toll House products are affected by the recall. Officials are asking those with the Toll House refrigerated cookie dough to throw it out or take it back to the store for a refund.
