Absolutely! Our resident sous vide food-safety expert, Dr. Douglas Baldwin, has found that to pasteurize whole eggs in the shell, you would need to “place the egg in 135 °F (57 °C) water for at least 1 hour and 15 minutes (Schuman et al., 1997).” This is from his website A Practical Guide to Sous Vide Cooking, and more information can be found here.
