"NESTLE's Cookie Dough Is As Good As We Say It Is," Says Swiss-Based Chocolate Maker!

"What E. coli are you talkin' about?"
"According to reports released by the FDA, the company declined to
allow agency investigators access to certain documents in at least
2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007."

"Refused FDA Records Requests"

Inspection reports from a Nestlé USA cookie dough factory released
yesterday show the company declined several times in the past five
years to provide Food and Drug Administration inspectors with
complaint logs, pest-control records and other information.
The records, which date to 2004, were made public after Nestlé's Toll
House refrigerated, prepackaged cookie dough was discovered to be the
likely culprit in an E. coli outbreak that has sickened 69 people in
29 states, according to the latest estimates from the federal Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC and the FDA are
investigating the outbreak.
According to the reports released by the FDA, the company declined to
allow agency investigators access to certain documents in at least
2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007.
FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Kwisnek said the Glendale, Calif., unit of
Switzerland-based Nestlé SA had the right to do so. "Companies have
the right to make conditions on what they will or will not permit
during an inspection," she said.
However, the FDA can force a company to comply if public health is at
stake.
In a statement, Nestlé said that it rejects any implication that it
did not cooperate with the FDA and that it provided all information
required under law, adding that its practices are standard within the
food industry.
"Nestlé always fully cooperates with the regulatory authorities
wherever it operates, and Nestlé is fully cooperating with the Food
and Drug Administration at our Danville, Virginia plant in this
matter," the company said.
