Lynne Terry from The Oregonian reports on a parent’s worst nightmare – buying food that sickens your child and husband. Here is part of the story:
One day while shopping, a Gresham mom, who had long shunned sweets to keep her family’s diet healthy, gave in to her daughter’s pleas for a special treat. Melissa Kitchens, 15, was craving chocolate chip cookies. So, her mom, Judy Akers, 38, reached for a tub of refrigerated Toll House chocolate chip cookie dough made by Nestle USA, a company that she trusted. It was a mistake.

Nearly 70 people in more than two dozen states have been sickened, 25 have been hospitalized and seven people suffered kidney failure. Read the full story in the Oregonian.
