I read about the new flour recall, but I didn't realize that was an actual thing to be concerned about. I thought it was anomalous.

I just read this article in Smithsonian: The FDA Just Declared War on Cookie Dough

I gotta say, I'm willing to live dangerously on this one.

I care more about cake batter than cookie dough and reading this is just making me crave it more.

Brownie batter is my weakness, especially when I spike it with kahlua.

E. coli and Salmonella contamination of flour is almost certainly coming from animal agriculture (for example, spreading improperly processed manure on fields, or runoff from factory farms onto crops) or contamination during processing. Can't they just irradiate the flour when it is packaged? I don't want to live in fear of eating an underbaked cookie (and I prefer my cookies slightly underbaked).

Irradiation is also problematic:

Might want to run your source through the baloney detector.

Is Irradiated Food Safe to Eat?
The FDA has evaluated the safety of irradiated food for more than 30 years and has found the process to be safe. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have also endorsed the safety of irradiated food.

The USDA is the last source I'd trust on anything, given the way they promote the meat industry. The FDA is sometimes on the ball, and sometimes woefully behind it. I do however have more faith in the CDC and the WHO, so I appreciate the information and will take it under consideration. Regardless, the point made at that site's page on irradiation and food-borne illness, that irradiation helps mask the ills of factory farming, is still well-taken, I think.
