Worried about the egg recall?

From a conversation we had with Kelly Johnson-Arbor, mother-to-be and toxicologist at Hartford Hospital:

“I’d say that people should be worried, because so many eggs were affected.

If the eggs are cooked thoroughly (i.e., no runny yolks or whites) then they are safe. However, cooking involves preparation, and it is very easy to contaminate your hands and/or cooking surfaces while preparing the eggs. For that reason, I’d probably recommend that people don’t eat eggs that were involved in the recall, at all.

Also, people should watch out for food products in restaurants that might have raw eggs in them, like Hollandaise sauce and Caesar salad dressing.

I personally threw out all of the eggs I had at home, just to be safe…”
