    Either way, we're cooking those little ****ers until they're done, Salmonella outbreak or not.
    That's probably a misconception. While it's true, free range and organic farmers chickens are not grown and cramped like egg farms, salmonella can still be present. Egg farms do one thing free range / organic farms do not: Run the eggs through a sanitizing wash to remove any fecal matter or organisms from the egg shell. That way, if salmonella is present, it's almost always in the egg itself. Free range eggs / organic farms may or may not go to that extent therefore, the risk of handling the egg itself may have more risk. Best thing to do whenever handling any kind of eggs of any sort --- after cracking them open, wash with soap and water. Make sure all implements, bowls, and hands that touch batter or anything do not touch anything else. Whenever handling those implements or washing them - use a little Clorox bleach in the wash water or, use the heat cycle on your dishwasher. Treat eggs like they are a potentially harmful chemical... and you'll be okay.

    Of course that rules out the Rocky Balboa breakfast.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I still eat a lot of eggs (I love eggs). Not too worried about it. Haven't gotten salmonella yet and it's not really all that lethal. So it's worth the risk to get my eggs in the morning. Mmmmm, chicken fried steak and eggs.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I love eggs. When I joined the navy, I would eat all of them I could. back home, mother said they were too expensive, so we rarely got them.
    Since my cholesterol numbers are good, I don't worry about that aspect of eggs. If the eggs look like they haven't been cleaned properly, I throw them out, but that is rare.

    My 2 favorite egg sandwiches are either toast, Fried egg, montery jack or provolone cheese, and ham,
    or toast, fried egg, bacon strips, and tomato slices. And it shouldn't have to be stated but here it is anyway, I fry them in BUTTER. It is a sacrelige to use any thing else....

    Was the rumor going around that there was saltpeter in the eggs when you were in?

    Snopes says no.
