Salmonella in Papa Murphy’s Cookie Dough Sickens 4 in Oregon

Four people in Oregon developed Salmonella infections after eating Papa Murphy’s cookie dough. The illnesses are part of a six-state outbreak that has sickened at least 18 people.

Papa Murphy’s has stopped selling the two flavors associated with the illnesses -chocolate chip and s’mores.  Consumers who may have these products at home should discard them.

Tests show identical Salmonella strains were cultured from all four patients, according to the Oregon Health Authority. This means they were likely exposed to the same source of contamination.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection, which include fever, vomiting, and diarrhea, usually develop within six to 72 hours of exposure. The Oregon residents sickened in this outbreak, who range in age from 20 to 57 years old, developed symptoms between April 1 and April 21.

Raw eggs and raw flour have both been linked to previous foodborne illness outbreaks. Health officials are working to determine which ingredient in the dough is contaminated.
