Wheat flour food safety in the kitchen

Wheat flour is not a ready-to-eat food. Flour is a raw food ingredient used in baking and other food preparation and must be thoroughly cooked before eating to prevent illness from bacteria that can be present in the flour. Do not eat raw dough, batters or other uncooked foods made with wheat flour. Children should not play with uncooked dough made with wheat flour. Always wash hands, utensils, and surfaces after handling wheat flour. For more information on baking food safety, click here !
