I have to say, I've eaten cookie dough and licked cake batter from the beaters without much thought (even knowing about raw eggs). At the same time, I will toss milk, poultry or other foods etc without blinking an eye, I will never keep raw meat beyond two days in the fridge etc. I certainly follow the when in doubt, throw it out. it is interesting how I have my own rules. I hate wasting food so I am real good about using things up and/or freezing the food etc.
I guess if one wants to be really strict, just skip the cookie batter and eat the chocolate chips with abandon.
Throw caution to the wind and eat that cookie dough etc.... None of us are going to get out of life alive, so you might as well have a bit of fun doing it. I am not saying be reckless, but if I listened to all the warnings out there, observed all the best buy/expiration dates on things, played by the rules etc.... I should have checked out years ago! Don't forget....we used to ride bikes well into the dark without helmets all summer long, drove in cars without car seats, and many more things that this generation is not allowed to do....times change, things change etc.... You get the point! Go ahead and lick the beaters!!!

KarenW -- You got that right! I've never been one of those that just bakes a cake, scrapes the batter into the pans, and then puts the bowl right into the sink. What, and not "taste tasting". Impossible. I just posted it because I thought it was interesting that it is not simply the raw eggs. I've never heard about the flour issue.
Raw cookie dough, pie dough, cake dough, biscuit dough == PURE DOPE. My favorite parts of each thing ever since I was a kid! Wonder if it helps that we keep our flours in the fridge? Hope so. PS: I haven't read the articles yet. Thanks Applecrisp!!

Now I need a t-shirt that says, "I survived eating cookie dough, drinking from the hose and sitting too close to the TV". My mother used beaten raw eggs in her bread stuffing for the holiday turkey and guess who got to taste it to see if the salt, pepper and sage were right? Yes indeedy, and I survived that too.
