    And then you whip out the fact that if it is that much of a risk so soon after being taken out of the fridge, then there would be a major recall because of how germaphobic the world is

    I’ve eaten more blops of cookie dough then I care to count, and have never had any problems. Also, if it hasn’t been sitting long, and the eggs were properly refrigerated, there is little chance of contracting so much as a stuffy nose.

    I’ve ate it all my life. I’m 58 years old and still in pretty good health. It’s the Generation!

    Never before in my (incredibly short) life have I ever heard of anyone ever getting salmonella from cookie dough, and everyone I know eats that stuff almost daily.

    Egg cant have salmonella or other bacteria inside; if all shell layers are intact, they don’t become addled, just dry out in a few months.Salmonella inoculums, however, can be on the sell surface, and get into the liquid when you break the egg. Nowdays eggs are cleaned carefully after collecting, but you can wash them yourself one more time to completely avoid this problem.

    This bit from Distractify…

    “However, there are other pathogens in any uncooked food, and in this case one of the big dangers is E. Coli. E. Coli isn’t in the eggs, it’s in the flour. Vice did a report on what happened to a Las Vegas woman named Linda Rivera. In 2009, Nestle issued a recall for 3.6 million packages of Toll House cookie dough, but Rivera hadn’t yet found out about it when she took a few bites and became extremely ill. Doctors initially cleared the bacteria from her system, but E. Coli wreaks havoc on your organs. She died several years later from related complications.”

    Next time she makes cookies, she could set aside a small amount of dough before adding the eggs.
