MongoDB Record Delete using JavaScript

I am trying to delete a bunch of records from MongoDB, but am having some issues with my JavaScript. It seems to go through the first 10 records and stop. Here is what I have so far:

function getObjectIDs() {
          var IDs = db.mycollection.find({log:{$lt:ISODate('2013-06-01T00:23:24.154Z')}}, {_id:1});
          return IDs;

function removeID(db, userId) {



var IDs = getObjectIDs();

IDs.forEach(function(ID) {
          removeID(db, ID._ID);

Open in new window

Can anyone see what I may be doing wrong?

in the mongo console what do you get with the following :

db.mycollection.find({log:{$lt:ISODate('2013-06-01T00:23:24.154Z')}}, {_id:1}).length;
