In America, the egg board states there's a 1 in 20,000 chance an egg will contain salmonella. They also state that it makes no difference if the egg is from a regular hen or from a free range, organic, $8 a dozen eggs, because hens are immune to salmonella and there's many entry points for the bacteria. The only safe way to eat an egg, they say, is to cook it fully.

In Japan, a commonly eaten food is tamago kake gohan, basically rice and a raw egg with some seasonings (or whatever else you want to toss into it).

So, do you take the plunge and run the risk, or play it safe? Personally, I've never had raw egg so I have no idea what it tastes like, but I'm curious as to the general views of others.

I was playing a drinking game with a couple of friends and some how someone made a rule that I had to swallow a raw egg, which I did (it's not that bad, but than again I can scull things fairly well). I did know that you can get salmonella from it, but as you say it's a fairly low chance so I was like, well, if this kills me, than that's just unlucky. Having said that, I wouldn't do it regularly, since I don't really wanna get sick.

The odds of salmonella are actually lower. It's not a death sentence. Eggs raw are great. I know more serious weight lifters that eat them raw, but I like it on steamed rice (TKG) I saw it on a episode of GIntama and I had to try it. Love it, I've eaten it 50+ times...with chopsticks...
