USA: New sterilisation method means safe raw eggs
An egg-pasteurization company based in Laconia, Connecticut, USA, has developed a production method, which should enable dairy suppliers to guarantee the safety of their product. John Davidson, chairman of Davidson's Pasteurized Eggs, has spent millions of (US) dollars on developing a method of treating eggs, making them safe to eat raw. The series of warm-water baths destroys the Salmonella bacteria inside the shell without cooking the eggs. They are already being sold in several grocery shops on the east coast of the USA.
