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.
