    They are effectively sterile until the shell is broken.

    Factory eggs suck. I was introduced to the organic eggs from Trader Joes and I am never going back.

    So out of the millions and millions of people that eat eggs regularly, 266 got sick. The odds are still WAY below that of getting the flu.

    I like my eggs runny and yummy - stories like this don't scare me at all.
    That's just in this outbreak. There were earlier outbreaks but that's only where the CDC is alerted, can trace the strain and compile the info between the states. Salmonella poisioning happens every day, in every state, in every town in the U.S. It might not be wide spread, but it's always there. If you like puking and the ****s for a full week --- be as adventurous as you want to be - it's a free country. I dislike runny anything... so it's all yours Taylor.

    Not true!

    The inside of an egg was once considered almost sterile. But, over recent years, the bacterium Salmonella enteritidis (Se) has been found inside a small number of eggs. Scientists estimate that, on average across the U.S., only 1 of every 20,000 eggs might contain the bacteria. So, the likelihood that an egg might contain Se is extremely small – 0.005% (five one-thousandths of one percent). At this rate, if you’re an average consumer, you might encounter a contaminated egg once every 84 years.
    That's right! You may encounter a contaminated egg once every 84 years! PANIC TIME!

    Most of the time, it's sterile.

    Chance of encountering a tainted egg is 1 every 84 years. Chance of getting sick off that egg make it even more of a non-issue.

    It's still true most of the time.

    I like runny eggs too.
    Never made me sick before.

    Correct - the salmonella is introduced into the egg before the shell is fully formed.

    Unlike eggborne salmonellosis of past decades, the current epidemic is due to intact and disinfected grade A eggs. Salmonella enteritidis silently infects the ovaries of healthy appearing hens and contaminates the eggs before the shells are formed.

    Most types of Salmonella live in the intestinal tracts of animals and birds and are transmitted to humans by contaminated foods of animal origin. Stringent procedures for cleaning and inspecting eggs were implemented in the 1970s and have made salmonellosis caused by external fecal contamination of egg shells extremely rare. However, unlike eggborne salmonellosis of past decades, the current epidemic is due to intact and disinfected grade A eggs. As noted earlier, the reason for this is that Salmonella enteritidis silently infects the ovaries of healthy appearing hens and contaminates the eggs before the shells are formed.
