is money something you have in case you dont die tomorrow?

follow up question:

do you run with scissors in your hands?

lastly, considering the amount of hoops and loopholes these food companies look for before they warn the general public, if this time they had no choice but to issue a warning about a virus outbreak, i would tread carefully. they have basically just 'cya' themselves to potential lawsuits. so i would probably heed some concerns at least.

meh - you're not supposed to eat raw eggs, either - but there are raw eggs in cookie dough. By definition.

Strangely - I don't believe there are any statistics of how many have died from eating cookie dough......
have you seen any?

Some things I worry about - raw pork and chicken and botulism. The rest of it??? whatevz.

Should be careful with hamburgers too, since that is a bunch of meat grinded up just cooking the outside might not get everything like a steak.

I remember working at a Cold Stone Creamery. We had these little balls of cookie dough to mix into the ice cream.

Well, they're safe for human consumption because they're really not real cookie dough. Well...they are, but they aren't. They don't have raw eggs in them or other ingredients that would make them unsafe to eat.

We'd bake fresh brownies to also mix into the ice cream, so we had this little oven for that.

Well, one day we decided to make chocolate chip cookies with the little cookie dough things.

Nope. Terrible idea.

They came out so gross...great tasting as raw "cookie dough" ... horrible as baked items.

I will wash down my raw cookie dough with my favorite drink of orange juice blended with a raw egg.

Yes, I said it.

LOL!! I was going to mention that, too - I love LOVE to steal raw bites of the hamburger right out of the package or warmed in the frying pan....

Steak Tartar, folks!!!

E. coli 0121 outbreak, 2012, Mini pizza rolls
E. coli 0121 outbreak, 2014, Clover sprouts
E. coli 0121 outbreak, 2016, General Mills flour

Yup, seems every two years there is a E. coli 0121 outbreak. Right on time! So if another happens in 2018 then we know there is... a conspiracy!

Small bits warmed up I would eat, but I wouldn't take them raw!

And I love me some sushi and tartar but hamburger is another beast, good luck with that! Make sure you are always stocked on TP

Do you eat raw potatoes? I have never heard a warning about that, but how could they possibly taste good?

They're fine. They don't have much taste at all to speak of, but they do have crunch.

Mom used to occasionally peel one and let us girls have it for a snack when we were growing up. We were easy and would pretty much eat anything that resembled and fruit or vegetable.

No, I spent every penny on some whiskey that I drank while speeding home from work.

LOL!! Thanks - I've developed a tolerance. Since I was a little kid - we stole raw bits of hamburger from mom's dinner preparations....never ever a problem. At least 50 years, that means.....I've been stealing bites of raw hamburger whenever possible.

We also licked the spoon and the spatula and the mixer beaters and even the bowl!! Raw brownie mix!!! Raw eggs, powdered mix, oil, water.........same for cake .....

"want to lick the bowl?"

"yes, please!"

And the other thing - so toxic I should be insane by now....mimeographed paperwork - the fluid was like sublime heaven!!!

Oh wow. Dee Lish Ussss...

Teacher would come in with an armload of freshly mimeographed handouts - some silly quiz or writing-practice worksheet - paper still as warm as fresh bread.....aroma as heavenly as the same ..... the blue butter of the mimeograph process was the secret ingredient.....

I can still imagine that high right now!!!! You guys, right?! Who knows the smell of fresh mimeograph handouts???? Weren't they the elixir of grade school?????? 1960s and 70s.....


ETA: Yet I still handle raw chicken only when outfitted in hazmat accessories ....

oh, and pork makes me nervous,too - never ever put it on wooden cutting boards!!!......keep the tap pre-heated and plenty of dish-soap on hand.
Bleachy wet-wipes are handy as well......

Best and most germ-free method:

Get out your baking dish and whatever cooking things you want: red wine or oil or pesto or soy sauce or curry or broth or bbq or salsa...whatever. Choose your style and set out the ingredients.

Put on food-handlers gloves. With dominant hand, open the package of chicken or pork by tearing the plastic. Overturn the styrofoam tray or packing plate and allow the meat to fall into the baking dish. Drop the styrofoam tray into the trash, then carefully peel off the glove that was holding the tray with the other (still sterile) glove. Then drop that one into the trash as well.

I used to be like that.....
now I actually sometimes rub seasonings in with my bare fingers!!!!

They want us to stay hysterical. Don't give in!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And you know who gets sick? Little babies and people with fragile immune systems and people who've never had a belly ache ever.

Normal human life entails breast-milk for early immunity and nutrition.....then mouthing and sucking on everything in sight....
then teething and drooling and going out into public and catching colds and stuff - and then eventually outgrowing ALL OF THAT, so that in middle age (or sooner with daily bombardment of germs) a person never gets sick ever.

Until the germs mutate.

Modern medicine is really a very dangerous game of Roulette.

The FDA doesn't know my life.

I like cookie dough better than cookies.

LOL!! You know what? I was just rereading the OP - and it came to mind....

kids who eat paste. Remember how paste wouldn't kill you, and some kids would eat it? That was one of those are cruel. They'd say to other kids....

have you been eating the paste?
Anyway, paste was edible. Apparently.

Here, smell my mimeograph worksheet......

Next they'll tell us we can't eat raw chicken.

You're not my real mother, blog.

Who eats cookie dough though, seriously. You know it will turn into cookies if you cook it.

Huh. My mom always told me not to eat raw cookie dough because you can get e.coli from it. Guess she was right.
I never did eat raw cookie dough, but I used to love eating brownie batter that was left over in the bowl. After years of letting me do it when I was a young kid, she finally told me that it probably wasn't a good idea.

The raw flour is more of a problem than the egg. I have eaten cookie dough with almond flour I made myself. Tastes pretty good!

Some of you are complaining about the FDA's recommendation, but you'd feel pretty bad if you fed your child raw cookie dough and they had to go to the hospital while suffering immensely from bacteria poisoning, wouldn't you? Sure, we can't protect them from everything, but why take stupid chances? Might as well let them play in a busy street....

Guess what? E.coli poisoning came from the processing facility in all likelihood. So your almond flour is just as susceptible.

Taking this awfully personally for someone who can just go "Eh, thanks for the tip, FDA. I'll pass, though."

Seriously, all of you with your panties in a bunch, un-bunch them & carry on, FFS. I'm all for food safety, and keep warnings in mind when I eat risky ish, but I'm not going to flip my lid over THIS. Some folks need hobbies, like, yesterday.
