Flour & Home Food Safety
The Partnership for Food Safety Education recommends people not eat raw cake batter, cookie dough and other doughs, whether they come from a mix or are made from scratch.
Flour and other ingredients can contain harmful bacteria that are only killed during the cooking process. Children are especially vulnerable to serious foodborne illness.
