if you are buying it off the shelf in a bottle, I'd be surprised if you couldn't eat it, as that kind of pre-packaged stuff tends to use powdered and pasteurised eggs. however, if you know the brand that she buys, why not email them? I have done that with lots of the places near work that do things l like for lunch - pret, EAT, vital ingredient etc - and so far they've all emailed back straightaway and confirmed!
me too - it's really hard not ordering it in restaurants! but i am more cautious there, as apparently a lot of restaurants buy eggs in bulk from abroad as it's cheaper, and they aren't always vaccinated like british hens.
I would just give the brand a quick email; they should come back really quickly and put your mind at rest. then get stuck in!
Ok. I thought it was ok in this country as our eggs are salmonella free. But i dont est eggs so not looked into it much! Sure bottled will be fine. As pp says it will be made from powdered eggs most likely.
the mw is right in that is what the nhs says. for this reason I have stuck to it.
however, I must say that I know loads of people who don't bother, so long as the eggs are lion stamped and therefore the hen was vaccinated against salmonella. my friend who is 2 weeks behind me has been living on runny poached eggs and eggs benedict!
Apparently there are plans afoot to change the guidelines regarding eggs. Lion stamped eggs are free of salmonella and thus totally fine to eat, even runny. As a precaution I am still careful to ensure eggs are fully cooked when eating out, but I am much more lenient at home where I know the eggs are safe.
