SOUTH BEND — A lot of people know about the danger of salmonella poisoning from uncooked eggs in raw dough.
But fewer may be aware of the danger posed by flour.
That’s why the Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat raw cookie dough or batter.
It comes in the wake of an E. coli outbreak linked to General Mills flour.
The flour has infected at least 38 people in 20 states.
The company is now recalling 10 million pounds of flour.
In addition to eating it, the FDA is warning parents not to give their kids raw dough or baking mixes to play with.
Even though they’re not eating it, the bacteria can still be absorbed through their hands.
