Even eggs purchased from approved sources can contain harmful bacteria that can lead to foodborne illness. Pasteurized eggs and egg products have been treated to destroy salmonella and other disease causing microorganisms.

Consider using pasteurized eggs or egg products in dishes that will not be fully cooked (e.g. over-easy eggs, soufflés, Hollandaise sauce).
