Nestle temporarily halted production of the refrigerated dough while the FDA investigates the Virginia company where it's made, company spokeswoman Laurie MacDonald said.
Jillian Collins got sick after she ate raw cookie dough. So sick, in fact, that she was rushed to the emergency room and had to be hospitalized for a week.
Collins filed a lawsuit against the company on Monday, the Contra Costa Times reports. The suit claims Collins started having severe stomach pains and bloody diarrhea a few days she ate the raw dough at the end of May.
"We haven't reviewed the suit, so (we) can offer no comment on it," Nestle spokeswoman Laurie MacDonald said, "but we're obviously very concerned about those who have become ill and also grateful to know that they are recovering."
The company issued a voluntary recall on Friday for several of its raw cookie dough products.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
The attorney representing Collins is also representing people from Texas, Colorado, New Hampshire and Colorado.
