Always refrigerate them
Tuesday, July 16, 2013
The CDC offers this advice for the safe handling of eggs:
- Refrigerate eggs and other perishable foods at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower.
- Only purchase eggs from sellers who refrigerate them.
- Toss out any eggs that are cracked or dirty.
- Don't allow eggs to sit at room temperature for longer than two hours.
- Skip restaurant dishes made with eggs that are raw or barely cooked.
- Ask the restaurant if their eggs are pasteurized. Pasteurization kills salmonella and other foodborne germs.
