'TIS NOT THE SEASON TO FREAK OUT OVER COOKIE DOUGH
FDA COOKS UP ALARMISM OVER RAW DOUGH
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Independent Women’s Forum Culture of Alarmism project director Julie Gunlock issued the statement below on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's new warning against consuming raw cookie dough:
"The Food and Drug Administration's latest warning not to eat raw cookie dough should have all Americans worried: Not about the dangers posed by raw cookie dough, which are minuscule for otherwise healthy people, but about a government that has grown so large that it has time to issue absurd health warnings while treating free citizens like they are simple children incapable of measuring risk. Clearly it's time to cut government if federal agencies have time to cook up alerts on nonsense like this."
Independent Women's Forum is dedicated to developing and advancing policies that aren’t just well intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities.
