America & the World Through the Eyes of a Pin@y
Rhett:To tell the truth, I've never been a balot aficionado. But I'm wondering -- should there be any concern nowadays about Avian flu being transferred through Balut?Jean
Well Jean, if you cook the egg long enough, that should kill the virus in the egg. Outside the egg is a different matter. If there was avian flu virus on the outside of the egg, chances are that the person who collected the egg would be dead. In which case, the CDC should be called in and the process of destroying the whole duck farm would begin ala England's mad cow disease mayhem.
