Chefs DO bring meats to room temperature before cooking.

Not always. Chefs know that the longer a meat is out of the fridge the easier it will be exposed to bacteria. after 41 degrees farenheit all sorts of things can start to grow.

Maybe not always, but any good chef does. It does not matter how much bacteria grows on the outside of meat - when you sear it, it will be killed.

Eggs also work better in all their culinary applications when allowed to come to room temperature before using. Salmonella bacteria, if present, are on the outside of the shell and don't come in contact with the yolk or albumen until the egg is cracked.

Salmonella can be inside the egg. It can be introduced from the infected chicken while it is inside, being formed.

Salmonella is not found inside eggs unless the shell has been compromised. Salmonella may sometimes be found on the outside of the shells.
