Do you personally know anyone who has gotten sick from raw cookie dough?

My cousin was hospitalized and critically Ill from salmonella from the raw eggs in cookie dough. It was very scary. I've never allowed anyone in my family to eat raw eggs since. I don't know of anyone else getting sick though.

You don't get that sick from eating it. There isn't enough raw egg to do the job unless you eat four batches of cookies worth.

It would be pretty difficult to single out cookie dough as the reason for you feeling sick unless you weren't eating anything else.

Well then. I guess some people eat only cookie dough ;)

Are you counting eating too much and only cookie dough for breakfast, or are you talking about salmonella and other food poisoning?

Because I have eaten raw cookie dough for breakfast and felt a little sick afterward...

I was more thinking salmonella.

None, though most people I know eat it.
