Why did I find dirt specs on a few eggs in my carton?


All certified Grade A eggs are thoroughly washed in a carefully monitored bath when they are delivered to the grading station, and scrubbed with brushes. Despite this, sometimes dirt specs are very stubborn and cling to the shell.

All certified Grade A eggs are thoroughly washed in a carefully monitored bath when they are delivered to the grading station, and scrubbed with brushes. Despite this, sometimes dirt specs are very stubborn and cling to the shell. These are usually caught when the eggs are candled and inspected, but very occasionally an egg with dirt can slip past the inspectors. Dirt on the shell is harmless – bacteria would have been removed n the wash process.
