Is It Safe To Eat Undercooked Eggs?
Good evening doctor. Is it safe to consume fried or half-boiled (still slightly melted) chicken eggs? thanks.
Hello deniiteza, Thank you for the question.
Eggs are a food that is often consumed by humans. If the cooking method is not correct, there is a risk of contracting food-borne bacteria. Consuming chicken eggs that are cooked until they are cooked is the safest thing to do. It is undeniable that many people prefer to eat raw or parboiled eggs. However, if you consume raw or undercooked eggs, there is a possibility that these eggs are contaminated with Salmonella bacteria that are in the egg shells. These bacteria can also be found on the outside of the egg shells if contaminated with feces when the hens lay eggs. Salmonella bacteria can cause infection in the digestive tract which can cause symptoms of diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, flatulence. You can prevent this by cleaning the eggs before you eat them, cooking them until they are cooked, storing eggs in the refrigerator, avoiding eating eggs with cracked shells, consuming eggs or other foods containing processed eggs immediately after cooking, and always maintaining cleanliness. your hands before eating.
Hope this information is helpful.
