Good news for egg lovers.

Despite the recent outbreak of salmonella in eggs, officials say properly handled and refrigerated, thoroughly cooked eggs are safe.

If eggs are cooked at a temperature of 160 degrees, the bacteria will be destroyed and safe for immediate consumption.

Runny, sunny-side up eggs are not safe, as salmonella may still be alive.

However, that doesn't mean you should cook & eat eggs on the big recall list - those still need to be thrown out or returned.
