Say no to raw cookie dough — CDC issues warning

Officials with the US Centers for Disease Control want you to say "no" to raw cookie dough.

For many, one of the best parts of making cookies for the holidays is the spoonful (or 10) of raw dough snuck from the bowl before it's scooped, baked and turned into actual cookies.

The CDC reported that in 2016, more than 60 people across the United States were sickened with E. coli from raw flour.

Additionally, raw eggs can contain Salmonella which can make you sick if eaten raw or under cooked.

It might be tempting, but if you're taking a bite of homemade cookie dough, cake mixes, or even bread, you may be putting your health at risk.

The CDC said children can also get sick from handling or eating raw cookie dough that is used for crafts.

Grains are grown in fields near animals that can introduce contaminants that remain throughout the entire collection and transportation process. Flour sold in grocery stores is raw. Stomach cramps and diarrhea are typical symptoms of food poisoning, and occur within six to 48 hours in the case of salmonella, but can take three to four days in the case of E. coli.

So, what's so unsafe about raw cookie dough?

Follow the recipe or package directions for cooking or baking at the proper temperature and for the specified time. Because flour is a powder, it can spread easily.

Follow label directions to refrigerate products containing raw dough or eggs until they are cooked.

Keep raw foods such as flour or eggs separate from ready-to-eat foods.

"While Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough products contain heat-treated flour and pasteurized eggs, these products are not meant to be consumed raw and should be baked as directed prior to consumption", says Nestle spokeswoman Lauren Brady.

Do not make milkshakes with products that contain raw flour, such as cake mix.
