    Is it safe to put raw eggs in eggnog?


    Answer:

    Raw eggs may be contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis, a type of bacteria known to cause serious illness, especially in children, the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems. We do not recommend using raw eggs in any recipe where thorough cooking will not occur.
