When I was on vacation in France I dropped by a farmer's market and the eggs were covered in poop.

The "Chicken Chick" said it is safer not to consume poopy eggs:

This article said H202 and UV was the best:

I was told by a local farmer to wash in hot tap water.

I found washing to be quite a chore so I stopped washing 🙈🙈🙈

I don't wash my eggs until I'm ready to crack them and then I just run under Luke warm water (only if they need it). But I also don't have a lot of poop on them. Clean coop=clean eggs.
I haven't died from it yet so will keep going 😂
