Sometimes I like to eat some (15 to 20 pieces) uncooked and dry spaghetti from the store as a snack.
Still, I am worried a little about salmonella and other such things, so my question:
How safe is eating uncooked spaghetti?

Yes and no; in smaller quantities; no problem. If you sit down in the morning and eat bowl daily; you will cause some serious long term issues.
Raw flour is full of lectins and phytates; which can pose a danger in higher amounts; damage the lower GI and cause IBS; other issues
Nutrient problems can develop from the raw flour intake at higher amounts
Bacteria standpoint; no problem; eat away.
As the comment mentioned; some fresh pasta could be harmful because of the raw egg.
