    Question Mmmm...Raw cookie dough

    Who could possibly resist raw cookie dough?

    That's not my real question though.
    You know those packages of Pillsbury cookie dough where they are already cut (into nice bite sized pieces ) and you just place them on the sheet and bake?

    Well, we had one of those in our fridge which wen unused for about two weeks, so the other day I opened it up and popped about three in my mouth within an hour.
    Since then, I've had six more.

    I've always heard that eating raw cookie dough can be bad for you, I think it may have involved salmonella (sp?).
    Is this true?

    If so, how much would you have to eat?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    About every few months I purchase the Sweet Marthas brand or the generic store brand. I have been doing this for many years, and I usually end up eating a number of the cookies raw. I have never had a problem.

    The concern is that the uncooked eggs in the dough may cause Salmonella. My *guess* is that the eggs used in commercial dough are pasteurized, for liability reasons. (They irradiate some meats too)

    I wouldn't be too concerned, you will know in 6 and 48 hours if you have a problem.

    Do you know how many people eat cold pizza? It's a very common thing. Plus, I don't think HCL is going to react with a bacteria and explode.

    I've had two raw "cookies" since I posted

    I'm going to agree with Criminal#58369 on this one. When people eat cold pizza, it doesn't expand in the stomach because it's already cooked, and simply just cooled down. However, if you eat cold, uncooked pizza, it could blow up in your stomach. The same thing happens with watermelon seeds. There have been many documented cases of false pregnancies resulting from the swallowing of watermeleon seeds. Imagine the look on the dad's face when he finds out his next child isn't a boy nor a girl, but a watermelon.
