Surprise in Raw Cookie Dough

Looking forward to some raw cookie dough this holiday? Think again! When scientists examined 35 cases of E. coli food poisoning occuring in mid-2009, all but two of the hospitalized victims had eaten uncooked chocolate-chip cookie dough. Two-thirds of the patients were younger than 19 years old. While you might blame the eggs used, they had been pasturized. Only the flour had not been safeguarded from E. coli
