I’m in Alaska this week and out of Internet contact most of the time so it’s been hard to follow the cookie dough story. It seems that the strain of E. coli found in the cookie dough does not match the strains in the people who have gotten ill from (presumably) eating it. The FDA can’t figure out how E. coli got into the cookie dough.
When I can get to a computer, I like to check the FDA page on this outbreak, and also the one from the CDC. But it looks like they are only updating the pages about once a week. So the quickest way to keep current on this is through Bill Marler’s blog.
