The U.S. government's Food Safety and Inspection Service lists these suggestions to help you select and store eggs properly:
- Only purchase eggs that have been stored in a refrigerated case.
- Check to be sure that your eggs are not cracked or dirty.
- Make sure the eggs are not past their expiration date when you buy them.
- Choose only eggs with the USDA grade shield.
- Store eggs in the refrigerator as soon as you get home.
- Place eggs in the coldest part of the refrigerator, never in the door.
