It might seem tempting to take a bite of raw cookie dough but the Centers for Disease Control says don't do it.
Warnings about eating cookie dough have been around for years. The CDC has issued their updated advisory for the holiday season.
Why shouldn't you munch on raw cookie dough? Flour and raw eggs could contain bacteria and salmonella.
This goes for any unbaked mix so it's probably best not to lick the spoon of the cake batter.
Do you think you've gotten sick from cookie dough or snacking on the batter? When did you get ill from eating something undercooked?
