    Raw eggs back on the menu.

    Raw eggs are safe to go back on the menu for pregnant women, experts conclude

    Raw eggs are back on the menu and can even be eaten by pregnant women, officials have said, as the Government's food safety arm has changed its advice for first time in 15 years.

    Tighter hygiene standards within UK hen farms mean British "Red Lion"-approved eggs are now free from salmonella, a potentially deadly bacteria which has been previously associated with eating raw eggs.

    Read more on this from The Telegraph online HERE




    I don't know about you peeps but as the chickens are STILL carriers of salmonella, I don't know how they can guarantee that the eggs are now free of contamination.

    Anyway, raw eggs are really nasty.

    Anybody ?

    I used to use raw eggs as a hangover cure in Worcester sauce, but I cannot think of any other time when eggs should be consumed raw.

    It was published only a few days ago that just about all raw chickens are contaminated by bacteria.

    Here's only one site that talks about this: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2014/02/the-high-cost-of-cheap-chicken/index.htm

    Thanks for the link Zath'.

    And yes, one would think that if the chickens are contaminated by all of these forms of bacteria, that the eggs would be contaminated too.

    I wonder how the "government's safety arm" come to the decision that eggs are now free of such bacteria ?

    I cannot understand why or how they can now state that eggs are totally safe to eat raw.

    My old mum showed me how to test an egg to see if it was fresh: You drop it carefully in a glass of water and if it sinks to the bottom and lies level it is fresh. If it sinks but lies at an angle on the bottom it is not so fresh and if it sinks and lies upright it is getting to the end of it's freshness. If it floats to the top it is probably bad and should not be cracked at all.

    Of course this test does not tell us if it is contaminated by any of the food poisoning bugs.

    Nice one Angie.

    I personally think that they now make eggs safe to eat raw because they irradiate them as they pass the inspection areas.

    They would not readily admit to this though.
