BRITONS are not at risk of salmonella from eating runny eggs though they will still sicken anyone forced to watch, a watchdog has confirmed.
The Food Standards Agency has confirmed that, 30 years after Edwina Currie injected salmonella into eggs as revenge against her lover John Major for jilting her, lightly cooked eggs are now safe and stomach-churning to eat.
A spokesman said: “We’re not announcing this without a measure of regret.
“For three decades, the only comfort of seeing some filthy bugger dipping perfectly good toast into repugnant yellow egg has been the possibility they might get salmonella and spend a week vomiting, or best-case scenario die.
“But sadly the only people who will get sick from revolting runny eggs are those unlucky enough to be in the room with the monsters eating them, or catching a whiff of their eggy breath afterwards. Euurgh.”
The FSA also confirmed it is also now safe to eat raw eggs but not to because it is manky.
