    Pregnant women, babies and elderly people can now safely eat runny or even raw eggs under new advice issued by the government’s food safety watchdog almost 30 years after the UK salmonella crisis.

    The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said it had revised its advice after a “thorough and robust” review of new scientific evidence found that those vulnerable to infection could now safely eat raw or lightly cooked eggs – provided they were produced under the British Lion code of practice – without risking their health.

    That is good news, even though I can't stand lightly cooked eggs. I knew someone in the early 1990s who was quite poorly for several months after eating an infected egg. He worked in the food industry (ran a village shop that sold home-made and freshly cooked food, as well as a B&B), and it was a long time before he was allowed to have any contact with cooking or serving food to customers, especially if that food contained eggs. It wasn't just the people who ate eggs who were affected by all this.

    You are on the right Forum. We are very egg oriented here! And most of us like soft cooked... (sorry @Elawin).

    @Elawin has a friend in me, @morning glory. I just can't do a runny yolk. :yuck:After decades of cooking hard-boiled eggs, I've just come to the point where I can deal with a shiny center in the yolk rather than bone-dry.
