I've read that one doing a low mold, low yeast diet should avoid eggs.
Assuming the eggs are not broken when you crack them into a frying pan, I can't figure out why that would make sense at all.
What's up with that?

If the shell is unbroken, the inside of an egg is sterile. I have heard that dairy products are not allowed on a mold- and yeast-free diet because milk contains sugars (lactose) that can feed the mold and yeast, and other dairy products (yogurt, cheese) are themselves fermented/ripened and can have live cultures.
The shell of an egg can have molds and yeasts on it so if you are really avoiding all molds and yeasts then you'd have to be careful handling them. There are trace amounts of sugars in eggs too, something like less than a half a gram. Not sure if that would cause problems on a mold/yeast free diet... doesn't seem like it to me but I'm no expert!
