LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A recent warning to avoid eating raw cookie dough has Twitter users rebelling.
In a tweet earlier this week, FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Americans shouldn’t eat the dough because flour and raw eggs could make people sick. Raw eggs may contain salmonella, and flour may be contaminated with e-coli. When you bake the cookies, the heat kills any possible bacteria.
Twitter did not take kindly to the news.
