Eggs can be a part of a healthy diet; however, they are perishable just like raw meat, poultry and fish. Some eggs may contain salmonella bacteria, which can cause food borne illness. Follow storage, handling and cooking guidelines to prevent most egg safety problems.
Don’t eat raw or undercooked eggs
This includes “health food” milk shakes with raw eggs, Caesar salad, hollandaise sauce and any other foods like homemade mayonnaise, ice cream or eggnog made from recipes in which the raw egg ingredients are not cooked.
