Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Size Difference Between Eggs
Ever wonder about the difference between medium versus large and extra-large eggs? The USDA defines the sizing of eggs not by their dimensions, but by their net weight per dozen eggs. Not by the true size of the individual egg.
The expiration date on an egg carton gives the date that is no more than 30 days past when the eggs were packaged in the carton.
The expiration date is, in contrast, to Sell by or Use by which is the date that is the maximum time to expect eggs to maintain their quality. This is 45 days past when the eggs were packaged in the carton.
Refrigerated eggs need to be stored in a refrigerator at home. When a cold egg is left at room temperature it can sweat which increases the risk of bacteria entering the egg.
Leave refrigerated eggs at room temperature for no longer than 2 hours.
