Yeah for Anna getting awards! ;)

You’re not supposed to eat raw cookie dough anyway, so why is it Nestle’s fault? (I’ve always eaten cookie dough and never gotten sick.)

Jeez, it seems like everyday something else is being recalled. It is really that difficult to manufacture food that isn’t contaminated with something?

What happened to making cookies from scratch? A lot less chance of these goofy food borne illnesses when you go lower down the food chain (buy less prepared foods).

^Thanks Anna!
(Even though I don’t have any–scary stuff!)

Katrina, I think food companies generally assume responsibility and recall products when ‘expected misuse’ of products can be problematic. For example, they recently recalled a drawstring hoodie for children because of the risk that small children could choke themselves, and they have recalled Happy Meal toys with tiny parts that children might feel compelled to eat and then choke. Obviously, eating plastic toys isn’t part of a nutritionally balanced meal, and a parent saying ‘hey, don’t eat that’ is the best strategy to protect a child but I still think it is a good idea.

I don’t think there is any way to totally protect yourself against food-borne illnesses. Healthy stuff like organic spinach has been contaminated, as well as various brands of peanut butter and cookie dough.
