Nestle cookie dough recalled, may contain pieces of rubber

For Immediate Release

PHILADELPHIA -- Nestle is recalling dozens of batches of ready-to-bake cookie dough. The world’s second-largest food and beverage company issued the recall after consumers reportedly found bits of rubber in the dough.

Dylan Robb, U.S. PIRG Education Fund Consumer Watchdog associate, issued the following statement:

“We shouldn’t have to worry that the food we eat could contain inedible and potentially harmful materials. We need to have better food safety checks to keep foreign objects, such as rubber, out of our food and out of our bodies.

"Nestle is taking the correct action by initiating this recall. However, this contaminated food never should have made it to store shelves, let alone to consumers. We need a major systemic change to ensure these problems do not happen.”
