You are not alone if you enjoy raw cookie dough, it's a dessert recipe that you will even find in ice cream. What you might not know it that eating raw cookie dough recipes or batter, whether it is for bread, pizza, cookie recipes, or tortillas could make you, and your kids sick. You want to avoid eating raw cookie dough as it can be unsafe. The reason for this is you could be ingesting a strain of bacteria called Shiga toxin-producing E. coli. Raw cookie dough that is eaten or handled by people could have flour in it that has the bacteria that make people sick. In 2016 ten million pounds of flour were recalled, to include unbleached, all-purpose, and self-rising varieties because of the bacteria. Some of the flours that were recalled had been sold to restaurants that allow children to play with the dough made from the raw flour while they were waiting for their meals.

While most people understand the dangers of eating raw dough recipes because of the presence of the raw eggs and the associated risk of salmonella, not everyone is aware of the risk of eating raw flour. Consumers should be aware that there can be additional risks that are associated with the consumption of raw cookie dough or dough recipes, as there may be particularly harmful strains of E. coli in a product such as flour. Flour comes from a grain that comes directly from the field and is typically not treated to kill bacteria. Bacteria from the field could contaminate the grain used for flour, which is then harvested and milled into flour. Common steps to kill bacteria during food preparation and processing include boiling, roasting, baking, microwaving, and frying. But with raw cookie dough, no steps to kill the bacteria has been used. So when you make any sort of recipe that requires the use of flour, whether it is dessert recipes, no-bake treats or bread recipes you will want to be sure and get the flour to the right temperature to kill any bacteria that may be present.
