The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a regulation expected to prevent each year the approximately 79,000 cases of foodborne illness and 30 deaths caused by consumption of eggs contaminated with the bacterium Salmonella Enteritidis. For additional info, please feel free to check out this link.
There is a lot of information available about how eggs become contaminated, etc. My goal here is only to show that pasteurizing can be done at home without the expense of store-bought pasteurized eggs.
However small the risk, prevention is just one instructable away!
Step 1: Items needed
