    Yes, fully cooking eggs to a temperature of 150 degrees F., will kill salmonella. If the eggs are runny and not firm - don't eat them. Runny scrambled, soft-boiled, or what I call "upside down lookin' at you" are not fully cooked and at risk. Firm scrambled, to "shoe leather", hard boiled, or any eggs where the whites are firm and not runny should be safe. Safer yet would be the whites and yolk are firm and fully cooked.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    We always eat them fully cooked at my house (usually boiled), so no worries. We feed my daughter organic eggs anyway, so I'm not too concerned about it even if the egg doesn't get fully cooked for some reason.

    Organic does not mean they are free of possible salmonella infection.

    Food = risk . . . regardless of how it's grown, harvested, kept, fed or killed.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    True. But when chickens aren't housed on top of each other and repeatedly dosed with antibiotics, the odds become greatly diminished that they will become infected with a salmonella infection.

    I agree with this, though I do think most organic food is way overrated.

    Because of you(), I bought some organic eggs this weekend.

    I would imagine the odds would be smaller in the case of organic food for the housing reasons Catz mentioned. I believe one of the prime vectors for poultry is ingestion of another bird's droppings.

    Either way, we're cooking those little ****ers until they're done, Salmonella outbreak or not.

    Pussy. At my house, we enjoy living on the edge.

    Last thing I need at my house is a four-year-old ****ting and puking all over the place. It's all we can do to keep her from redecorating the house with "washable" (washable, my ass) markers.

    There's a huge difference between factory farmed and small, local growers - organic or not. I prefer my meat free of drugs and other chemicals, and my produce free of chemicals - that's why I buy from organic farmers. Yes, there's a risk regardless, but the risk is FAR lower with smaller, local farmers.
