Uptight health professionals love to warn us about the dangers of eating raw cookie dough, but as it turns out your plumber might not be too keen on the stuff either. According to a recent report, a city in Mississippi is struggling with backed up pipelines thanks to excess cookie dough being sent down the drain by a local cookie manufacturer.
At a meeting last week for Canton Municipal Utilities – the Canton, Mississippi-based company that handles water services for much of Madison County – their Board of Commissioners complained that excess cookie dough had become a major problem in some of the area’s pipes, the Madison County Journal reported. The alleged culprit is a company called DeBeukelaer Corporation, best known for its Belgian-style Pirouline rolled wafers, that is apparently is sending a lot of cookie dough down the drain. “We seem to spend a lot of time out there,” CMU General Manager Kenny Wayne Jones was quoted as saying. “It’s clogging it up. They need an accurate way of disposing it.”
