F.D.A.: Destroyer of All Things Fun

Hey, do you like eating cookie dough? Too bad!

The F.D.A issued a statement on Tuesday warning people to stop eating raw dough due to a recent E. coli outbreak linked to contaminated flour.

According to the F.D.A., “38 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O121 have been reported from 20 states. Illnesses started on dates ranging from December 21, 2015 to May 3, 2016. Ten ill people have been hospitalized.”

This outbreak was linked to General Mills, who issued a voluntary recall of 10 million pounds of flour back in May.

They are also warning against homemade play dough.
