Raw cookie dough may be dangerous to eat
The next time you bake, you'll want to skip sneaking a bite of raw cookie dough. The risk of falling ill from the batter might be greater than once thought.
A new report released on Friday by the Centers For Disease Control finds that the culprit of a 2009 E. coli outbreak was ready-to-bake cookie dough sold in most grocery stores.
More than 70 people nationwide got sick including a Bay Area teen. The CDC believes raw flour may have caused the outbreak.
The FDA says several cookie-dough makers have already switched to heat-treated flour.
