I ate raw cookie dough

sunflower sunflower
It tasted really good and I only have a less than 30% chance of salmonella if my memory is correct.

I just wanted to tell u about a day in my life so that if I die from salmonella one of you can come over and delete my internet history.
Cookie dough tastes really good and I'm sure I could make it without eggs but I'm lazy and I like to live life on the edge.

Also I went grocery shopping and I saw my baby niece and usually I hate babies but she is a cutie. I still don't understand how to deal with babies really. They're like little tiny people. Weird.

Do it without eggs unless you want to play the Salmonella Roulette with me!

You've never eaten raw cookie dough before!? I love it, I always have a spoonful when I make cookies. You can make it without eggs no problem but I also like to live dangerously.

I'm the oddball who doesn't like it. Give me a warm soft cooking out of the oven anyday. Cake batter is ok though.

Nah I eat it quite often. Haven't been sick yet (knock on wood).

It's really good idk??? It tastes better than the baked cookies.

You can totally make cookie dough without eggs! Try vegan recipes, or ones that are specifically meant for "edible cookie dough".

I've been eating raw cookie dough since before I can remember, so I'm sure you're fine. Human bodies are able to consume a lot more safely than we give them credit for. Just don't eat pounds of it haha.

I like cookies best when they're straight from the oven. After they've cooled I'd rather have the dough.

I've eaten a lot of things cold and/or raw. Cookie dough and other sweets batters are the higher on the list.

As long as you don't leave your dough or eggs sitting out for hours, you're probably fine.

I want to share this. It still warns you not to eat it raw, but I've never had trouble with it. Oh, did I say "I"? I meant, uh, "my friend".

How is it you eat the raw dough & I'm the one suffering from food poisoning right now?!? Holy crap, just kill me! I'm 18 hrs into it and between "attacks" so I thought I should see what's up here to get my mind off it. I cannot describe how bad it was, I couldn't even move from where I fell on the floor. Dad had to come get me to ER - they sure run to help instead of making you wait when you *ahem* make a smelly mess in their waiting room...sorry, tmi? JUST DON'T RISK THIS!!! I was so sick I didn't even care someone had to disinfect the damn place from my 'paint job'.

SOLUTION: You can buy eggs that have been slowly treated in water baths to raise the temp & kill the bacteria inside the shell while not cooking it. I think bad ice cream got me, otherwise it was veggies I ate! They need to make a toilet that has a second bowl feature so both ends can use it at the same time! Be careful with the dough, I wouldn't wish this on you, sunflower! It is BAD & you know I can toss cookies with the best of them without batting an eye - a wuss I am not & I still thought I was gonna die! Uh oh, window of grace is closing, gotta go...I am so screwed!

Mmmm, cookie dough. Yea, salmonella isn't too bad, and that's the most common side effect of eating uncooked eggs

I'm the one who got salmonella from undercooked Cheesecake Factory chicken. I have eaten cookie dough and tasted batter hundreds of times with no ill effect. So I just do what I want now.

I have an "f it" attitude regarding cookie dough. I don't like cookies so I make the dough. When people say "but you'll get salmonella!" I go, "Eh, my luck's crap, so cheers!" and I eat the cookie dough.

It's not 30 percent though. It's lower than that. It also depends on how you crack the eggs. Salmonella is only present on the shell of the egg (because chickens have one nether end for mating, eggs and excrement. You can figure out why there's salmonella). You can reduce your chances by cleaning the egg and using different cracking techniques.

I will only eat a little bit of it while in the process of making it. I get wary about these things.

It takes about 4-8 hours for symptoms to set in, so you usually got poisoned from whatever you ate two meals ago--not your most recent one.

I experienced that loveliness once after eating at a barbecue-it-yourself Korean place. The food was so good, but I must not have cooked my meat thoroughly enough, because I was the only one who got it. Holy mother of dildos, it was awful. At one point I was crawling back down the hall from bathroom to bedroom, and just curled up in a ball, face down, in the hallway to rest a minute. I woke up there, hours later.

However, I've never had a problem with raw eggs. As a kid, my grandma would make me a breakfast shake using a raw egg or two and some Nestle Qwik; now, I make breakfast shakes with raw eggs and coffee, and I love raw cookie dough.

I've loved cookie dough since college - we're talking the 70s here! However since I'm pretty much a low-carb eater now, I don't do it often anymore.

OOOhhh, raw cookie dough. You do like to live on the edge, don't you. What kind of cookies were they? Raw chocolate chip is the best.

Mwar, I'm surprised to hear you say that Salmonella is only present on the shell of the egg! It is also possible to have it inside the egg!

When a chicken catches Salmonella, it does not get symptoms like we do & eventually, the disease gets into it's ovaries and enters the eggs long before the shells are formed! It only used to be thought that it was just the outside of the eggs, but over the years they found this other source. That is why the industry regularly tests the laying hens for ovarian bacteria. But, there are only a few infected hens in the US at any one time & even they can lay many eggs where only some of them are infected. Your chances of getting Salmonella are extremely low. Yes, cleaning the egg before use & cracking more carefully can help, but it won't make any difference if the source is inside the shell. That is why I mentioned the eggs that are treated in warm water to kill any bacteria inside the egg, in case anyone wanted to be more careful.

Actually, the incubation period is 12-72 hours for Salmonella and then the symptoms last 4-7 days. -- not the 4-8 hours you mentioned. Maybe you are thinking of something else? Or maybe the example you gave is from someone who ate from a grossly contaminated source, as in out of the usual?

You are such a fact-checker, WW! That was off the top of my head from a medical article I'd read in the past, and may have been about a different type of food poisoning. I mainly recall that it's usually what you ate two meals ago, and not the most recent meal, that is the culprit. But then, I read that a long time ago, so things may have changed.

I keep raw cookie dough in the fridge all the time. It is our favorite snack and so it is made up fresh once or twice a week. We have been doing this for 16 years and have not gotten sick from it yet.

Well, even the best of us mess up sometimes. I can't always be perfect. It wouldn't be fair to everyone else

Thanks for the info. It's good to know. Everyone, please ignore that part of my post. I don't want to spread false information.

Ha, yeah I've always ignored that safety tip. When I make chocolate chip cookies I always eat raw dough. Sometimes quite a bit of it. Hasn't been a problem yet

I figured it was for something else, probably what I had, Bacillus cereus. I had the emetic type and it hits within .5 - 6 hrs after eating. The other, diarrheal type sets in 6 -15 hrs after eating, both very fast for food poisoning. And many of the other types incubate for days which is why you're right, it's so hard to know what was the cause. I hadn't eaten in a few days because of a migraine, so I knew what did it.

I wasn't trying to fact check you, I already knew the info, so I wanted to put the correct info out there, it wasn't an attempt to be snotty, I hope you know that?

Actually store bought cookie dough is made, sort of knowing people will do that, and thus is supposed to be "safe" as far as I have read....

However, there is still the camp saying "don't do it".....

ANY part of the egg, raw, can indeed spread this disorder. There are "pasteurized" eggs now, which can help decrease that risk..
