Thoroughly Cooked Eggs Are Safe to Eat

Filed under: General Information, Nutrition During Pregnancy — Tags: , , , , , — Elizabeth Ward @ 1:49 pm

When you’re pregnant, you should be cautious when it comes to food. With all the talk about the recent egg recall due to potential contamination with salmonella, you may be wondering if eggs are safe to eat. The answer is yes!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, thoroughly cooked eggs are safe eggs. Salmonella is killed with proper cooking.

How do you know your eggs are thoroughly cooked? The yolks and whites are firm. If you’re making dishes such as quiche, frittatas or French toast casseroles, measure the internal temperature of the dish with a kitchen thermometer. It should register 160˚ F, and you’re good to go!

As always, wash your hands before handling food, keep your refrigerator at 33˚ to 40˚F, toss food that’s been left out of the fridge or the freezer for more than two hours, and keep eggs, and other raw animal foods, separate from other foods.

Visit eggsafety.org for more information about the egg recall and the safe handling of eggs, now and moving forward.
