Can the flu be spread through baked goods prepared by someone with the flu?

So, my wife lovingly made some sugar cookies for my work Christmas this evening. And couple hours later she is vomiting in the bathroom. Is it unsafe for people to eat the cookies?

    NO the cookies will be fine they can not pass the flu to others (by baking factor),, she may have something other than the flu.

    Influenza doesn't cause vomiting.

    If it's really a flu virus, then the cookies should be safe after a wait of about 8 hours after her last contact with them.  Flu virus cannot survive that long outside the body.
