During the recent egg recall my grocery store had the pasteurized eggs on sale for the same price as the regular ones. I bought them and found them to be no different than ordinary eggs. I always assumed that all eggs had the potential for salmonella and took precautions. But I do love an occasional soft poached egg and in the rare instance that I bake I must confess to being a spatula and bowl taster.

The price of the pasteurized eggs is now back to the regular price of $3.29/doz and I bought them anyways. It just sounds like a good idea to prevent the problem before they get to your kitchen. We economize in a lot of ways (love the homemade laundry detergent!) and we don't eat a lot of eggs so I'm going to continue to get the pasteurized ones.

Married, both 63. DH retired June, 2010. I have a pleasant little part time job.

Yup. Stored in the forward escape trunk a cool and stable environment, they'll last a couple of months. Toward the end of that time they may smell slightly funky when scrambled, but if the shells are intact they'll likely be safe.
