Is Salmonella On The Outside Of The Egg?

Salmonella can be found on the outside of eggs. Although salmonella is primarily an intestinal bacteria, hens sometimes carry it in their ovaries and it comes out on the outside of the egg. As long as the inside white and yolk of the egg don’t come into contact with the outside of the egg then there is little chance of getting salmonella, since it’s on the outside of the egg. It is a good idea to rinse the egg shell prior to cracking.
