I was eating this cookie dough from out of the tube and I got bored so I decided to read the nutritional information on the cookie dough and it said not to eat raw cookie dough.
 
Is it possible to be cookie dough poisoned?

#2 Edited by MAGZine (436 posts) -

Cookie dough contains raw egg, which has a chance of carrying salmonella.

You could get salmonella poisoning, but it's not really life-threatening. It'll make you sick for a bit and not much else. Usually raw egg is fine... I eat cookie dough all the time.

You could get salmonella or another food poisoning, but I don't think you will die unless you have really bad cholesterol or diabetes or something attune to those.

In twenty minutes, you will explode into bits.

You'll be fine. Most likely.

It's said that on the packaging for years now. If it does kill you, it takes quite a few years to kick in.

Also baking the cookies is good to do. Makes your house/apartment smell nice.

You should be fine as long as you have a medkit to rub on yourself.

Induce vomiting. Ipecac preferably. Take a video and post it here. For science.

You could get salmonella from the raw egg, but seriously, there's a very, very slim chance of that. So go ahead and eat it.

I prefer cookie dough over cookies.

Only other problem is that raw flour isnt so good for you to digest.

They put that warning there because they don't want people to find out how delicious it is and get addicted. They do the same thing with silica gel.

Actually, it can kill you quite dead.

It can, but it won't. He has a better chance of going outside and getting hit by a car.

#19 Posted by Scrawnto (2434 posts) -

Raw egg always carries a chance of salmonella, just like rare meat carries a chance of e-coli. But it's just that, a chance. So hey, roll the dice if you're feeling lucky. I personally prefer my meat well done and my eggs cooked, so I've never had cause to worry about it.

I hasn't killed me so far and I don't think it will kill ...me, excuse me 'reads a comment'

You'll be fine as long as you don't eat the little anthropomorphic dough ball in the hat that's been talking to you since you bought the tube.

#22 Posted by InternetCrab (1504 posts) -

Depends on how much you ate. However, you will most likely be fine.

Yeah, so why not run around in fields during thunder storms too?

What kind of ridiculous logic is that? "Hey there is something out there that is more dangerous. So this less dangerous thing is just fine!"

This is apples & oranges territory.

If don't sleep or hydrate yourself, then yes, salmonella will kill you quite dead. But if you drink your water and get your sleep, the chances are enormously in your favor that you will not, in fact, be killed dead.

Do you live in a plastic bubble? I mean really these sentences, in a thread about raw cookie dough no less, just astound me. Unless you're joking. I hope you're joking.

I didn't know there was a raw cookie dough jihad going on. I just pointed out that it is not the best idea. -__-

But you compared eating raw cookie dough to running around in a field during a thunderstorm. Even if you're exaggerating, that's kinda nuts.

Now I don't know the numbers, but I'm willing to wager that, lets just keep this limited to the years I've been alive, so lets say during the last 25 years the number of people that died due to thunderstorms is way higher than the number of people that died from diseases they got eating raw cookie dough both collectively and proportionally.

Anybody ever eat raw cookie dough in a thunderstorm?

Because it sounds awesome.

The point was not to compare the dangers in terms of numbers in eating raw cookie dough to running in a field during a thunderstorm, but to say "why take unnecessary risks?" But I rarely eat cookies and never cookie dough. So get your dough and go at it. Whatever.

What in the holy hell are you talking about? I'm just saying, statistically, he's more likely to be hit by a car than get salmonella poisoning. And he's not very likely to get hit by a car. I wasn't advocating him to 'take a risk' and eat cookie dough (which is ridiculous sounding as it is), I was merely pointing out that there's not much of a risk to begin with.

Bottom line, yes, you can get salmonella. You probably won't. But even if you do, the chance of death is so extremely rare that it's not worth worrying about. Most likely, you'd just get diarrhea for a day or two.

Unnecessary I agree with. Risk, not so much. In my mind the eating raw cookie dough is as risky as eating anything else is. Particularly things like fruits or veggies that you'd eat raw, or eating food that someone else has cooked/handled like in a restaurant. There's always a small chance something might be bad about it, but I never think about that. Maybe my mind is wrong about that. But I mean they have cookie dough ice cream which just has chunks of cookie dough in it, right? Eh I'm thinking way to much about this.

And I don't mean to be a dick about this. Sorry if I'm coming off that way. I just found that quote fascinating.

#39 Edited by Mikemcn (6958 posts) -

1 in 10,000 eggs contains Salmonella. So when you're at home, and you put an egg in cookie dough and eat it, you most likely will never get salmonella.

However, the company that made that cookie dough brings in 30,000 eggs everyday, mixes them all together, and makes huge batches of dough. The chances that you got at least part of those 3 tainted eggs is relatively large in that circumstance.

So don't eat raw cookie dough you buy in the store.

#44 Posted by TEHMAXXORZ (1199 posts) -

You'll be fine, there's a tiny risk you'll get salmonella from the raw egg in it. I wouldn't consider eating it regularly as part of your diet, because then you might actually get something serious.

It's a conspiracy. They don't want you to eat the cookie dough because they want it all for themselves. Who are they? Those fucking Keebler elves. Who else did you expect?
