Safe, But...

Enjoy if fully cooked!

According to the FDA, eggs are a safe choice for pregnant women if they are cooked until both the yolks and the whites are firm. Recipes with eggs, such as quiches, should be cooked to 160 °F.

Raw eggs and food made with raw eggs should be avoided during pregnancy. According to BabyMed and the American Pregnancy Association, raw eggs may contain bacteria such as E. coli or Salmonella, which may be harmful to both a pregnant woman and her baby.
