    I did not know that you could get salmonella from eggs! The only way to make sure is to well cook all eggs. No more runny yokes. I think the recall is now up to 32 million eggs.

    I know some people like their egg yolks runny, but I never have. I rarely eat eggs but when I do they are hardboiled or scrambled or in omlets (throughly cooked)

    CDC information

    Dipping hash browns or buttered toast into a runny fried egg is one of life's (guilty) pleasures.

    Mmmm, runny eggs.

    I'm pretty glad I get my eggs from a small local supplier now.

    I get mine from a neighbor. Fresh eggs rock!
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I thought that's why you aren't supposed to eat raw cookie dough (even though I've been doing it since I was a kid ).

    Anyway it said one lady got it from eggs in a cobb salad.. I'm assuming that the eggs in that were fully cooked? Having never eaten a cobb salad I don't know lol.

    A lot of chefs are trained to hard boil eggs a little softer than would be considered fully cooked to reduce the sulfur component.

    You can buy pasteurized in the shell eggs, which is what I do when I'm making hollandaise or some of the the other dishes that use raw egg without bringing it to a high enough temperature. (I'm a little aghast at how my dad used to throw half a dozen egg yolks into the blender to make the Chrismas egg nog.)

    Meanwhile, I buy the cage free organic eggs, and so far none of them has shown up on the recall list.

    Evert Cobb salad I've had, the eggs (hard boiled) have been fully cooked. But I heard that many of the recently reported salmonella cases are not necessarily from the contaminated eggs, but are from the "usual" salmonella cases that occur from other foods (every year there are about 40,000 cases reported in the US).

    I used to eat raw cookie dough when I was younger, too. I haven't baked cookies in years, so now I'm not tempted, otherwise I probably still would.

    Where can you get them? I'd make my own mayonnaise but the raw egg thing makes me .
