As all of you know they have a recall on eggs it is all over the news. It seems as though it is getting worse instead of better. People are getting sick from consuming eggs. Are you still eating eggs? If not what is your subsitution for eggs? Have you eaten any eggs since the recall and gotten sick?

Hi Chevee, i'm still eating them. Don't think we get any in tennessee from the area they are being recalled. I bet it has hurt the sale of them everywhere. Alot of people will claim to be sick whether they are or not, so goes life people wanting something for nothing. I hate that trait in people. Eggs are one of my favorite things for breakfast.

I have stopped eating eggs since the recall. I have not gotten sick but am afraid. Once it is over I will buy more.

Yes I still eat eggs but I do not live anywhere near where these recalls have been issued be that as it may I have discussed the issue of the salmonella tainted eggs recall with the owner of a local cafe that i eat at as a regular and he has assured me that the eggs they get for their restaurant are bought locally and are fresh which has to some degree put my mind at ease. Even still it was shocking to know this has happened and what more can be done to prevent future occurences like this from happening in the first place

I eat a lot of eggs during the week and I just love eggs as they are very good for you and are full of vitamins. I have two boiled eggs for breakfast every morning and I cannot continue with my day unless I have had two eggs for breakfast. I don't recall ever becoming sick as a result of eating eggs although I do know that there was a time when it was said that eggs contained samonela or something along those lines and a lot of people gave up eating eggs for a while. I think that it was just a scare story though. I do know that eggs are full of protein and that's why a lot of people into fitness tend to have them. They are particularly good for body building and I life weights myself and I guess I'm making full use of the protein in eggs. I only have my eggs boiled anyway, this is the healthiest way of cooking them. I never have fried or scrambled eggs! I had my two eggs this morning and they were fine and now I won't be having anything else until late this evening. Andrew

I've eaten a few eggs since the recall but once I found out about it, I stopped. I haven't gotten sick, thank God so I consider myself VERY lucky. I drink a nutritional drink instead which is just as good if not better than eggs as far as nutrition is concerned.

I don't really eat eggs that often. I haven't bought any since the recall, but I wouldn't have bought them normally. Really, I only buy them when I am making a recipe that calls for eggs. I know you can use mayo as a substitute for eggs when it calls for eggs in a recipe. Like a cake. It tastes just as good.

Hi Chevee! I still buy eggs. I printed out a list of those egg brands affected and simply don't buy them. Still, that doesn't necessarily mean that I'm buying eggs free of salmonella. You can thoroughly cook eggs and kill any bacteria in them, including this salmonella strain associated with this egg recall. This means making sure that even the egg yolks are solid, not the least bit runny. So, hard-boiling, scrambling or even thoroughly fried eggs are okay to eat. Local farmer's markets should have eggs without contamination. Still, you can never tell so it's always good to make sure you cook the heck out of any eggs you eat. I have been very careful about buying things that contain raw eggs, like mayonnaise. I will not order anything from a restaurant that contains eggs, not right now. This recall is massive and it is scary! Still, salmonella poisoning doesn't normally kill people. Maybe the very old, very young or those whose immune system is compromised. If you get sick from salmonella-contaminated foods, it only takes a bit of common sense to know if/when you should go to a hospital. If you only get a little bit sick, you should be just fine in a few days. If you're very sick, you should go to a hospital to avoid dehydration. Just common sense. I hope the authorities have caught all the contaminated eggs and egg products by now. It was bad enough when they thought all the eggs had come from one egg-producing farm, then they found another contaminated farm. Let's hope they don't find any more! Oh, and no, I haven't gotten sick from eating eggs. I've just stopped making my soft-boiled eggs or frying them with a runny yolk... for now. Hopefully, it won't be long until we can feel safe eating eggs again.

Hi Chevee, We have not heard anything here in the UK so it must be ok here, what is going on over where you are? I love my egg and had two already today, I have not heard anything about it on the news, if anything like that happens here, I wouldn't bother eating eggs again, God knows what people doing doing with them.
