The American Egg Board states: “There have been warnings against consuming
raw or lightly cooked eggs on the grounds that the egg may be contaminated
with Salmonella, a bacteria responsible for a type of food
poisoning….Healthy people need to remember that there is a very small
risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods accordingly. Use only
properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled, fresh, grade AA or A eggs.
Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the shell.”
