    You can still get salmonella, as there's eggs, milk and that sort of thing in it. Just because you don't feel sick now, or you haven't gotten sick in the past, doesn't mean you won't in the future.

    My advice? Try this eggless cookie dough recipe. I added the link to it below! :)

    It depends on what type of cookie dough it is. If it's home made with raw eggs, then you shouldn't eat it. It could be contaminated with the salmonella bacterica, and you could get very sick. If it's commerically made cookie dough, you should check the label to see if it was made with raw eggs. There are some commerical cookie doughs that specifically say they were not made with raw eggs, and those would be safe to eat.

    yea, I love raw cookie dough too. I don't reccomend that you eat too much because it will cause you to have an upset stomach for a few days. You don't have to worry as much about eating packaged cookie dough, just don't eat homemade cookie dough or you could get Salmonella.ick ={

    yes, it can be bad because it has raw eggs in it. when there are raw eggs in a product then there is a chance of getting salmonella poisoning. i too love cookie dough and ive never gotten sick from it, but if you do get sick, then its really bad<3

    Besides the fact it'll make you fatter than a beached whale, yes, it is bad. It has raw eggs in it which can cause salmonella, a potentially life threatning disease.

    ummmm yeah, because there are raw eggs in cookie dough, (except when it's in ice cream) and raw eggs can carry salmonella, which can make u sick
