    this is often sold in stores and often sold in schools and such to raise funds for clubs and such.

    people eat it as it is. it is dangerous because it is raw. the dough comes from flour. the flour from wheatfields where livestock have
    defecated in.

    since the flour is made from this material it contains e coli. the "raw
    cookie dough", not being baked, contains whatever e coli was in the initial grinding of the wheat into flour.

    so, are you going to eat raw cookie dough or not ?

    this is an existential inquiry.

    About half a century ago, I did lick the cake batter from the spatula and the mixer beaters (after they were detached from the mixer, of course) in my Mom's kitchen, and I lived. Raw eggs and raw flour both involved in that.

    I wouldn't buy anyone else's raw cookie dough, though.

    On a side-topic, why isn't there an E. coli vaccine? Or is that because it's bacteria instead of a virus?

    it is an existential inquiry because it is not about the provenence of cookie dough.

    it is about the origin of what you ingest without thinking about where it comes from.

    'Twar those Dark Patterns down the pub, ye see. They battened upon me like wayward lint attracted to a cloak of wool that had acquired an electrostatic charge.

    But just as their paths had crossed mine, so mine had crossed and diverted theirs, and the five innocents who live at 37A Cheswick Mews still live because of it.

    Well, except for little Gavin, who just had to eat the cookie dough.

    Because there is naturally occurring E. coli in our guts already; it's responsible for a lot of the breaking down of what we eat. The problem arises when we get someone else's bacteria that hasn't adapted to our personal system.

    But that's why we can't inoculate against it, it would kill off the friendly sort in our own gut also.

    I think you're pretty safe, so long as it isn't a french kiss. 😉
