Tainted Eggs

I wrote on perception last and here is a perfect example where public perception may end up outweighing common sense. The 550 million eggs from the recall due to salmonella may end up in your grocery cart yet. The eggs from the recall will be used as pasteurized egg product in many processed foods and commercial bakeries. The eggs will be broken, homogenized, and pasteurized.

One New York mother is having a fit on a philosophical level!? If it is dangerous to eat raw then why would be safe to eat cooked? Let me think about this... Because that is the reason we cook them in the first place is to get rid of the slimy texture and bacteria. She says science may back this but... Science backed nicotine use once also. WOW. Can we get anymore liberal and without common sense?

Use your brain. IF you may have recalled eggs cook them thoroughly. No over-easy, just hard or scarmbled. Do not eat raw dough or batter that may contain the eggs. Think about it. :)

  1. it's scary isn't it? I have stoopid stories posted to the blog all the time. I have said for a long time, if natural selection were the order of the day our population would be cut in half in a year.
