The Gainesville Times reports that as long as cross-contamination does not occur (from hands, utensils or other foods), pasteurized foods should be safe for even those in high risk groups. To pasteurize recipes containing eggs, 160 degrees must be reached or 140 degrees reached and held for 3 minutes.

Cook this mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until it just starts to bubble.
Mixture should be thickened and should coat a spoon; if a candy thermometer is handy, use it. If the mixture looks like it might start to curdle, remove it from heat and stir rapidly, return to low heart and continue cooking.
