Refrigeration limits the growth of bacteria, so eggs should always be kept refrigerated. This includes storage at the henhouse, the grading station, the grocery store and in your home.

A properly refrigerated egg will keep 7 times longer than one that is not – it will age more in one day unrefrigerated than it will in one week in the refrigerator. If eggs are left unrefrigerated for up to 3 days, be sure to cook them completely to kill bacteria that may be harmful. Scramble them, hard boil or using them in baking.
