Obv, this homemade mayonnaise recipe calls for raw eggs, so if you're not ok with that, you can pick up pasteurized eggs instead. Pasteurized eggs have been, well, pasteurized to kill any lingering salmonella bacteria from commercially produced eggs. Also, if you purchase free range organic eggs, you have a much lower risk of getting salmonella poisoning.
Basically, consume at your own risk. And if you want to learn more about the risks (or lack thereof) of consuming raw eggs, this article from farmersalmanac.com does a great job of explaining them.
