In brief: Avoid cookie dough

Pregnant women should probably not eat raw cookie dough, especially when making cookies at home! the raw cookie dough can be contaminated with e.
Coli and salmonella. Commercially prepared cookie dough ice cream should not pose a hazard.

There have been reports of raw cookie dough being contaminated with salmonella, which can harm a fetus - this should not be a problem with commercially prepared ice cream.
