baking cookies/fear of salmonella?

Question by Boyd Jackson: baking cookies/fear of salmonella?
My question is, at what temperature will baking cookies destroy salmonella, and how long do I have to keep it at that temperature. I thought someone said 160 degrees kills salmonella, but I can’t get any answers concerning how LONG it takes for the salmonella to be destroyed. Unless salmonella vanishes immediately the moment the oven temperature reaches 160. Please let me know!

Obviuosly, the temperature and amount of time the recipe specifies. No one out there creating recipes is trying to give you salmonellosis.
