Put That Peanut Butter Cookie Down!!!
The LA County Department of Public Health has issued a warning about frozen cookie dough that was sold in several area schools as part of a fundraiser. Aside from the fact that raising funds by selling frozen cookie dough is kind of weird, the problem is that the dough could possibly be tainted with salmonella. Tasty! Okay, it's not tasty at all, it's a major health risk, and anyone who purchased Peanut Butter Cookie Dough distributed by Sweet Success Fundraising, Inc. of Ontario from December 8, 2008 to January 8, 2009 should not "handle, bake, or eat," the product. Schools that might have sold tainted treats: Fremont Elementary in Alhambra, De Anza Elementary in Baldwin Park, Edgewood Academy in La Puente, Los Robles Academy School in Hacienda Heights, 93rd Street Elementary in L.A., Independence Elementary in South Gate, Walnut Park Elementary in Huntington Park, and Melvin Avenue Elementary in Reseda.
No illnesses have been reported following consumption of the product, but to be safe the item is being recalled. Consumers with questions about the cookie dough should call Sweet Success Fundraising, Inc. at (909) 947-5800.
