WASHINGTON, D.C. Health officials want to remind you that raw cookie dough belongs on the cookie sheet, not in your mouth.
In a tweet Monday morning, FDA Commissioner Doctor Scott Gottlieb told Americans they should not eat the dough.
The reason is because the flour and raw eggs found in many recipes may make you sick.
Raw eggs could contain the bacteria Salmonella while the flour may be contaminated with E. coli.
Thoroughly cooking the dough kills the bacteria.
