Raw peanuts do have some potential safety risks that roasted peanuts do not. They could be infected by fungi, or may simply cause digestive discomfort in their raw state. You can take measures to prevent any problems that may arise from eating raw peanuts by rinsing and soaking the peanuts before eating, only buying from a trusted source, and eating the peanuts within four months if kept dry. If you soak the peanuts, you will need to refrigerate them for storage afterward.
