Raw cookie dough may be dangerous to eat

A new report released on Friday by the Centers For Disease Control finds that the culprit of a 2009 E. coli outbreak was ready-to-bake cookie dough sold in most grocery stores.

More than 70 people nationwide got sick including a Bay Area teen. The CDC believes raw flour may have caused the outbreak.

The FDA says several cookie-dough makers have already switched to heat-treated flour.
