Click if you have the question: How can I tell if my eggs are tainted?

Food and Drug Administration officials said Monday that there is no evidence a massive outbreak of salmonella in eggs has spread beyond two Iowa farms, though a team of investigators is still trying to figure out what caused it.

As for consumers, FDA Chief Margaret Hamburg had some practical advice: Reject over-easy eggs. Consumers should strictly avoid “runny egg yolks for mopping up with toast,” she said, and noted that it is impossible to see, smell or taste any difference between eggs tainted with salmonella and those that are safe.

The most common symptoms of salmonella poisoning are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever eight to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product.
