Forgo Unbaked Cookie Dough

It can make you sick

(HealthDayNews) -- It may taste great, but unbaked cookie dough carries a salmonella risk -- less so with the pre-packaged product.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, foods containing raw eggs such as cake batter, homemade ice cream, and mayonnaise are a health hazard.

But because their commercial counterparts are made with pasteurized eggs -- the eggs have been heated sufficiently to kill the bacteria -- they're usually safe to sample. So if you just can't resist that homemade batter, use pasteurized eggs next time you bake.
