Here's something I posted to another list last month:  

I've definitely been doing that [eating raw cookie dough] all my life 
with no problem, and the same goes for my children.  We do a *lot* of 
baking here (my children were up late last night making fancy 
decorated pepparkakor cookies, and yes, not all of the dough made it 
onto the cookie sheets), and they enjoy cake batter as well as 
cookie/cooky batter/dough.  If anyone here had a compromised immune 
system then I might have more concern about it, but as it is we have 
always been extremely healthy.

I do get organic/free-range/no-antibiotics eggs from the grocery
store and from friends who have chickens, for whatever that might be
