“I Can’t Get That E-Coli Virus Offa My Mind”

That title is an inside joke that only a handful of people will get.  It's from a play I'm in which opens tonight (see right column).

One of our castmates was unable to make final dress rehearsal last night — tremendous stomach problems, apparently.

So you know where my mind went when I read this:

Nestle recalls cookie dough products for E. coli

66 reports of illness across 28 states since March; 28 people hospitalized

Food maker Nestle USA on Friday voluntarily recalled its Toll House refrigerated cookie dough products after a number of illnesses were reported by those who ate the dough raw.

The company said the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are investigating reported E. coli illnesses that might be related to the ingestion of raw cookie dough.

In a statement, the FDA said there have been 66 reports of illness across 28 states since March. About 25 people have been hospitalized, but no one has died.

Raw cookie dough?  Yeah.  You've done it.  Don't lie.

But don't, okay?

And Paul, I hope you didn't.  You better be there tonight, bubba.
