    I hate being wrong.
    So that doesn't exist.

    Most eggs are sterile, damn it!

    The article I just liked to (above) identified 1 in 10,000 eggs are infected. Given that number, (and discounting outbreaks) I'd say it's much less than 1 every 84 years... unless you eat runny eggs twice or three times in your entire life. But like I said... have at it. The runny stuff is all you.

    I break mine over a piece of bread and toast it a bit to keep the egg attached but still runny on the inside.

    Raw cookie dough, delicious.

    Would be 1 in 42 years to use their numbers - but that's way too high for me. That would be 4.5 runny eggs a week, each and every week for 42 years. I probably eat them runny 2 or 3 every 2 weeks. So that's... 1 every 154 years? Not even factoring in that I buy expensive eggs...

    Now you're talking! For me, add a little salt and pepper and lots of tabasco... perfection!

    The shell is a hermetic seal that prevents bacteria from entering the egg.
    They are effectively sterile until the shell is broken.
    Salmonella Levels Over 5x Higher in Factory Farm Eggs than Organic
    By Peter Shield
    Natural Choices, 2/1/2008
    Straight to the Source


    The Soil Association can reveal that a recent government survey shows that organic laying hen farms have a significantly lower level of Salmonella. Salmonella is a bacterium that causes one of the commonest forms of food poisoning worldwide.

    The study showed that 23.4 per cent of farms with caged hens tested positive for salmonella compared to 4.4 per cent in organic flocks and 6.5 per cent in free-range flocks.

    The research also showed that the highest prevalence of salmonella occurred in the largest holding size category (30,000 birds or more). This was over four times the average level of salmonella found in flocks closer to the maximum size allowed under Soil Association organic standards.

    No doubt that the commercial sanitary conditions are crap.
    I often see the bird trucked on the highway in cages to small for their height.

    Kinda sad.
