SOLON, Ohio, June 19 (UPI) -- A food poisoning scare has prompted Nestle to recall all varieties of its Toll House refrigerated cookie dough, the company's USA Baking Divison said Friday.

The voluntary recall was prompted by recent reports of people falling ill after eating raw Toll House cookie dough, the company said in a release from its Solon, Ohio, offices.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are investigating reports of possible E.coli illnesses related to the raw cookie dough, though no E.coli definitively has been found, Nestle said.

The recall involves Nestle Toll House refrigerated Cookie Bar Dough, Cookie Dough Tub; Cookie Dough Tube; Limited Edition Cookie Dough items; Seasonal Cookie Dough and Ultimates Cookie Bar Dough.

Consumers can return any of the refrigerated Toll House cookie dough products to their grocer for a full refund, the company said.
