Nestle announces voluntary recall of cookie dough

BY Alaric DeArment

ROCKVILLE, Md. Regulators are warning consumers not to eat a brand of prepackaged cookie dough due to the risk of E. coli contamination.

The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that any packages of Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough should be thrown away, and cooking the dough could lead to contamination if the bacteria gets on the hands.

In its announcement of a voluntary recall of the products, Nestle said the recall did not affect already-baked Toll House cookies purchased outside the home, Toll House morsels, chocolate baking bars and cocoa or ice cream with Toll House cookie dough sold under the Dreyer’s and Edy’s brands.

Cadbury reports improved sales, predicts stronger second half

BY Anna Mcgrath

LONDON Confectionary group Cadbury reported improved trading in April and May, thanks to Easter chocolate sales and new product launches, and anticipated further improvement in the second half of the year, according to the Associated Press.

Despite a slow start to the year, the maker of Trident and Dentyne gum, Halls and Bassett’s candies and Cadbury chocolates predicted a stronger second half that will balance out this year’s sales as a whole.

Gum and candy remained robust, aided by improved performances in several developed markets, Japan in particular.

The company’s share price rose 0.6% to 525 pence ($8.54) on the London Stock Exchange.
