If prepared right OK: If the sushi is prepared right by a trained chef it is Ok. But like any food it has to be prepared and stored correctly. You should be cautious who and where you get raw meats, that the chefs are reputable, and know how to prepare the sushi.

What are the unique situations that allow salmonella to contaminate eggs?

Dr. Robert Kwok

Hens have salmonella: When hens have salmonella, the bacteria gets in the eggs. People can eat the eggs safely if they cook them well, and if they use good kitchen hygiene. Good food-preparation hygiene means not touching "raw" foods and then touching "cooked or prepared/served" with one's hands or utensils (must wash hands or utensils in between touching the "raw" and the "cooked").

No: At this time there is no evidence that donating eggs leads to infertility in the future. Most women use only a fraction of their eggs during their lifetime and the rest if not used end of degenerating over time.

From the chickens: Chickens are common carriers of salmonella in their stools and the disease can pass transovarily from an infected chicken to the outside of her egg shell, even if the egg is otherwise intact and healthy.
