Salmonella Egg Recall — Kids Shouldn't Taste Cookie Dough or Cake Batter

Salmonella Egg Scare Makes Tasting Cookie Dough a No No?

Half a billion eggs have been recalled, but kids love licking the brownie batter more than they like eating the cooked treats. While stealing tastes of cookie dough and cake mix may be part of the baking ritual in some households, lots of moms are keeping their children's fingers away from the bowl because they are wary of the threat of salmonella posed by raw eggs. Salmonellosis is an illness that can cause diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, and headache. Do you take precaution or let your kids live and lick a lil?

I'm 27 and I did that since I was a kid, never got sick from it. I don't see anything wrong in letting a kid taste it from time to time.

I would not let my daughter try that and I don't do it either. Baked goods are usually worth the wait :)

no, I don't, and I don't allow my kids/husband to do it. I get mocked pretty much on every front "omg did you get the salmonella rant?!?" from friends and family, but I don't really care. Sorry, but i don't want my kids sick and I'm not picking up your slack while you're sitting on the pot for hours on end.
