Carton of Eggs

❁ Cook eggs until whites and yolks are firm. Cook egg mixtures until the center of the mixture is fully set (reaches 160 degrees F on a food thermometer).

❁ Wash hands and items that touch raw eggs or their shells with soap and water. This includes counter tops, utensils and dishes.

❁ Some eggs may look different but are safe to eat:

  • Lower-quality eggs have thin, runny whites and yolks break easily.
  • Whites of very fresh eggs might look cloudy.
  • Blood spots might develop on the yolk as it forms.
  • A green ring on a hardcooked egg yolk can be the result of overcooking, especially if eggs are older.

❁ Spoiled eggs smell bad. Throw them away.
