Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Papa Murphy’s Cookie Dough
Thursday, May 25, 2023

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is currently investigating Salmonella infections in at least six states that may be linked to raw cookie dough sold at Papa Murphy’s. 

Residents in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, California, and Missouri reported illnesses from February 27 to May 2, after eating raw cookie dough sold at Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake pizza stores.  The pizza company has temporarily stopped selling their raw chocolate chip cookie dough and s’more bars dough, and the items have been removed from its website.

So far, 18 Salmonella infections have been reported.  No deaths have been reported, though there have been two hospitalizations.  CDC officials say that the number of sick people is likely higher than the number reported and that the outbreak could extend to other states.

Keller and Heckman will continue to monitor this area and will report any significant developments.
