California's Department of Health issued an advisory today about the salmonella outbreak that's been linked to peanut products from a Georgia factory.
Peanut butter cookies and cookie dough that have been distributed by fundraisers at 162 public and private schools in California have been added to the list of recalled products, the department said.
The products were produced by Dough-to-Go Inc. of Santa Clara and distributed in 30 California counties. No illnesses associated with Dough-To-Go peanut butter cookie dough have been reported.
Dr. Mark Horton, director of the Department of Public Health, told consumers not to eat or handle the recalled items.
Dough-to-Go produced frozen peanut butter cookies and frozen peanut butter cookie dough under the Dough-to-Go and Jane Dough labels. The affected products were sold by groups to raise funds from last August to Jan. 16. The food is not part of the school lunch program, state officials said.
