A young Yelm woman is the first in Washington state to file a lawsuit in connection with the e-coli outbreak linked to Nestle cookie dough.

Lindsay Phillips, 18, ate a few pinches of the raw Toll House dough while baking cookies in early May. A few days later, she got really sick.

Her attorney, Bill Marler, said she suffered "extreme stomach cramps, eventually leading to bloody diarrhea. She was eventually hospitalized."

He says Phillips is seeking unspecified damages from Nestle.

The company has recalled all of its refrigerated Toll House cookie dough products. The Toll House refrigerated cookie dough is linked to 70 cases of e-coli in 29 different states.
