If an egg cracks while boiling it is it still safe to eat?

I'm not talking just a hairline crack. I mean a true crack where you can see the white inside. The contents of the egg stayed in so it obviously happened part way through the boiling process. When this has happened I have always thrown the egg away but now I'm wondering if this is necessary in the world of "egg safety."

I think that would almost become a poached egg. The key is that the egg cooks -- whether it's in the shell, like a boiled egg, or out of the shell, as in a scrambled egg, is not the central issue.

I've always eaten them when they do that, because they've been cooked in clean water and are still cooked...

I eat them ... and this happens to me a lot, because somehow I always crack one.

I hope so, because we eat them like that all the time. I would think as long as it's cooked, it's okay.

I have eaten them for 60 yrs now and am ok. Never considered throwing them away.

Cooked is cooked.

We especially like to dye the cracked eggs b/c they're still pretty when peeled. :)
