business news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports that months after Nestle had to pull its refrigerated Toll House Cookie Dough out of stores because of concerns about E. coli contamination, two more samples of cookie dough tested positive, but was pulled from the line before being shipped. No cookie dough on store shelves is affected, the company said.

At the same time, Nestle is saying that it plans to shut down its Danville, Virginia, plant for two days later this month to convert it to use heat-treated flour, which is far more resistant to E. coli contamination.
