The Washington State Department of Health has just released further details on the five confirmed Washington E. coli O157:H7 cases connected to the emerging nationwide Nestle cookie dough outbreak:
— May 6, Grays Harbor County woman,
— May 12, Thurston County teenage girl, hospitalized,
— May 15, Pierce County girl,
— May 20, King County boy,
— May 21, King County girl, hospitalized.
Beyond the voluntary recall, the response from Nestle has thus far been little more than an apology for the "inconvenience" this outbreak has caused. Click here for more details.
