Most people are aware that eggs are prime targets for Salmonella. It's why many parents – McLandsborough included – don't want their kids eating cookie dough. If you want to be safe, be sure to always cook eggs until the yolk is firm and, if you go to a restaurant, ask if they use pasteurized eggs when you want to eat something that combines multiple eggs. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and prevention, just one restaurant omelet can contain egg bits from hundreds of chickens.
