Say no to raw cookie dough — CDC warns

Well the health experts at the Centers for Disease Control say eating unbaked products can technically “make you sick.” Well the health experts at the Centers for Disease Control say eating unbaked products can technically “make you sick.”

'Tis the season for holiday treats, but make sure you're careful about licking the bowl.

.

That means no taste-testing batter or dough - not for cookies, cakes, pies or even bread and pizza crust.

"When you're making cookies, often the recipe calls for raw eggs", Lindsay Malone, a registered dietitian with the Cleveland Clinic, said in 2016. Medus says this was a change after a 2005 cookie batter ice cream salmonella outbreak.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention isn't rolling with cookie dough. But you may want to think twice before reaching for a taste of that raw dough. Harmful germs can contaminate grain while it's still in the field or at other steps as flour is produced. Cooking the flour will kill these germs but they can be present in flour's raw form.

The CDC also asks people to check for recalled flour products because it can sit on the shelf for a while before it's used.

Officials said they can make you sick.

Flour and raw eggs can contain bacteria and salmonella, which of course, can make you sick.

Qualcomm has filed dozens of patent-related lawsuits against Apple in China, in addition to those addressed on Monday. The company also issued a statement saying “all iPhone models remain available for our customers in China”.

Raw dough can contain bacteria that can cause disease, according to CDC.

Flour and raw eggs especially can contain bacteria and salmonella respectively.

In order to avoid illness, experts recommend not eating raw dough or batter - no matter how tempting it may be.

Some have very aptly pointed out that romaine lettuce poses a serious risk, so they're not about to give up cookie dough.

"Children can get sick from handling or eating raw dough used for crafts or play clay, too", according to the CDC.

The health agency sounds the alarm about eating raw cookie dough every year around this time, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection typically echoes the CDC.

The flour in the Pillsbury and Nestle versions of store-bought cookie dough is also heat-treated, but the companies still recommend people not consume raw cookie dough. Because flour is a powder, it can spread easily.
