Q:
Raw chicken juice leaked all over shelled raw eggs. Are the eggs ok to consume? Did the shells absorb the bacteria from the raw chicken and now may be dangerous to eat?

This isn't really our area, but we do read the reports that bacterial contamination of raw chicken is extremely common. Why not just boil those eggs?
