NYC's Insta-Famous Cookie Dough Shop Is Getting Sued For Allegedly Making People Sick

New York's DŌ café made a killing earlier this year when they opened a store devoted to edible cookie dough. Lines wrapped around the block, people waited for hours, and there were about a million and one Instagram posts featuring the pretty pink cups and cookie dough sandwiches.

Now, edible cookie dough is basically the new cupcake, with products sold in grocery stores and many more bakeries hopping on the trend. But less than a year after opening, the original dough shop is facing a lawsuit from customers who claim they got sick from eating the dough.

Julia Canigiani and Katherine Byrne filed a class-action lawsuit against the cookie dough shop for making customers sick and falsely claiming the food was safe to eat, PEOPLE reports.

Since raw cookie dough is known for its risk of causing food-borne illnesses, the whole premise of the shop is, of course, that the product is safe to eat. The store's website reads: "All ingredients in each of our delicious, homemade recipes are completely safe to consume just as they are – unbaked. We give you peace of mind, allowing you to eat a piece of cookie dough heaven how you like it best."

The shop uses a pasteurized egg product ("which means there is NO chance of salmonella," the site says) and heat-treated, ready-to-eat flour to make the cookie dough.

Canigiani and Byrne ordered two different menu items - an ice cream sandwich made with frozen cookie dough "cookies" and a scoop of oatmeal M&M cookie dough. Both claim to have experienced severe stomach pain within 15 minutes of eating the dough, followed by vomiting and diarrhea that night.

In the lawsuit, Yelp reviews are used to show that other people who ate the dough had similar stomach problems, according to Top Class Actions.

In a statement to PEOPLE, DŌ stood by the safety of their product. "We will fully and faithfully defend ourselves against any and all false accusations," the statement reads. "The health and happiness of our customers has, and always will be, a top priority."

Canigiani and Byrne are looking to represent all customers who have gotten sick from eating DŌ's products.
