Is it okay to eat runny eggs?


Runny eggs that have been properly refrigerated and have not exceed the Best Before date marked on the carton are still safe to eat. However if they smell bad do not eat them – they may not have been refrigerated properly in transit to the store.

The runniness indicates that the egg white is breaking down, which could mean that the eggs are aged, but this is not necessarily bad. Eggs produced by older hens may also have weaker albumen. This does not affect the egg’s nutritional value.
