Nestle Recall

on 6.19.2009 at 2:27pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.


In case you haven’t heard, Nestle is voluntarily recalling all of their refrigerated cookie dough products.  If you have any of these, according to their site, you are to take them back to the grocer for a full refund.  I do not know how this will work if you no longer have the receipt but there is a number at Nestle you can call for more information: 1-800-559-5025

Go here to read the full press release.  Note that right now no illnesses have been directly linked to these items, this is just cautionary.

    • I posted this on my blog and fbook, but got to thinking about last week when I made some and kept telling the boys they couldn’t have any…I ate like 4 and in the night I started having sharp pains in my stomach..then again this week…reckon it could have been the cookies? I am taking them back today for my full refund at BILO where I purchased them at…wasted 2 of my $1 coupons…

      Most refunds do not take coupons into consideration. How do I say this delicately? This is a money-maker if you stocked up on the last deal.

      I just took mine back to Publix. I had bought them a couple of weeks ago when they were BOGO, plus I had coupons. I told them when I went in that I didn’t have the receipt and that I got them BOGO. They gave me the full price refund, not a BOGO refund. I was happy!!! I didn’t need them in the first place,just bought them because I could, and to make money on them was exciting! So,Travise, don’t see it as wasting coupons, see it as a money maker!

      I just called my Publix (in Warner Robins, GA) and they told me to just bring them in and they will refund…even without a receipt. I too bought them with coupons on the B1G1 sale. I’m sure they are going to be busy since the sale wasn’t that long ago. What a shame, I was really looking forward to making them this summer for the kids.

      I actually just ate some last night and this afternoon . I got mine from the publix bogo sale. No problems here, Me, My wife, and my son are fine.

    • russell

      Ahhh, illnesses have been reported from consuming RAW cookie dough. I never do that anyway. I always bake it.

    • april k

      i was going to cook mine tonight! glad i checked the site….

    • .Jennifer

      I made some last night without knowing about the recall. I am fine. The problem is if you eat it RAW. Like anything that contains eggs, it can POSSIBLY be a problem if you eat it raw. If you practice proper food preparation and kitchen safety then you won’t have any problems. Just wash your hands after touching the dough, clean and disinfect any surfaces that come in contact with the dough or packaging (and Lord knows with all the sales we all have enough Lysol kitchen cleaner to last a lifetime) and make sure you fully bake the cookies before you eat them and you’ll be fine.

      I never understood why people ate raw cookie dough from the package anyway… seems like it is just too much of a risk.

      I am going to keep mine.

    • Becky

      Glad to see some people saw it was if you eat RAW cookie dough. After the first few comments I was going to point that out.

      Basically, it would be from raw eggs in recipes. Once cooked there is no problem (it would kill the e.coli). You can also get it from raw chicken. People always wash their hands after messing with raw chicken, but sometimes forget to sterilize the counter area they had it on. Just wiping it with a sponge will not kill it. You need to spray it with a cleanser, than wipe (I usually use paper towels).

      SO, if you want to keep the cookie dough, you will be fine if you bake them! Enjoy!

      Now I want cookies lol
      I bought some bogo

    • Jenny (another one)

      uummm, you mean you are supposed to cook it? oops…

      but seriously, can i get a refund if the cookies are all gone? i am sure i still have the receipt.

    • Nicole

      I was going to say the same thing as a few of you…I ate mine after cooking them last week and was fine. I have two more in the freezer and will be keeping them.

    • Katie F.

      The news said it was not from eggs b/c ecoli doesn’t come from eggs. They think it came from another source at one of the plants that makes the dough. That’s what makes it scary. There have been people in 28 states sickened so to err on the side of caution is wise.

    • CJ

      I was going to say the same, our local news said Nestle has said even if cooked, the cookies aren’t safe because they’re unsure of the source of contamination. I took mine back tonight and told the cashier I got them BOGO… Still got full refund back! Just another reason I LOVE Publix!

    • Amy

      Took mine back to Publix and they put the credit on a gift card without any problem. I know it says raw dough but my 1 year old little one ate some of the cookies when we made them last week and I’m not taking chances with her.

    • Sam

      I bought 2 at Publix on BOGO, and have 1 left. My kids always ask for a raw square before I cook them! Ugh! My son has been begging me to make the 2nd pack, but I haven’t done it yet and glad I didn’t, because that would have meant my kids would eat more raw dough. Going back today, baby!

    • LOL I have probably 25 packages from the Valentines time…. OMG… Could you imagine if I returned them… I don’t think I will though we will just bake and then eat…

    • Emily

      Got home from work Friday all ramped up to bake the cookies I’d been saving from the last sale – my mother-in-law happened to mention the recall to me on the phone that afternoon – I was so disappointed!!
      Oh well – not I just need to take them back, I guess!
