Well, the health experts at the Centers for Disease Control say eating unbaked products can technically "make you sick".

This is why you should never taste or eat raw dough or batter-whether made from recalled flour or any other flour.

Flour and raw eggs can contain bacteria and salmonella, which of course, can make you sick.

Since flour is typically a raw agricultural product it usually hasn't been treated to kill germs like E. coli, according to the CDC.

That means no taste-testing batter or dough - not for cookies, cakes, pies or even bread and pizza crust.

So, what's so risky about raw cookie dough? If you have any of the recalled flour products, do not use them and throw them away.

Most people know raw eggs can give someone salmonella, which can cause people to develop diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria.

A technician at the French firm Poult, specialized in the manufacture of cookies for supermarkets, checks on October 15, 2014, dough at company headquarters in the southwestern city of Montauban, which produces 340 million packs of cookies per year.

Follow the recipe or package directions for cooking or baking at the proper temperature and for the specified time.

Do not use raw, homemade cookie dough in ice cream.

Oh, and apparently cake mixes aren't off the hook.

"Raw cookie dough contains both raw agriculture and animal products, both of which can carry bacteria which may be harmful to us", she told CBS News.

The flour in the Pillsbury and Nestle versions of store-bought cookie dough is also heat-treated, but the companies still recommend people not consume raw cookie dough. The CDC reminds bakers though that eggs are safe to eat when cooked and handled properly.

Keep raw foods such as flour or eggs separate from ready-to eat-foods.
