Nestle finds salmonella in chips, E. coli O157:H7 in Toll House cookie dough

Nestle chocolate morsels made in Wisconsin have tested positive for salmonella, according to a company spokeswoman.

This news follows a statement from the company in January that it again found a potentially fatal bacteria in its Toll House cookie dough.

There was no outbreak -- or recall -- in either case.

Spokeswoman Laurie MacDonald said the salmonella turned up several weeks ago in tests of chips made at its plant in Burlington, Wis. She said tests before and since then have not turned up the bacteria.

The chips were not shipped and the company is not ordering a recall. “There is no outbreak and no recall,” MacDonald said.

Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tracked almost 70 people across the country became ill after eating Nestle Toll House cookie dough that was tainted with E. coli O157:H7. Those sickened included a Gresham teen, Melissa Kitchens, who was severely ill and missed three weeks of school.
