■ Refrigerate eggs in their original carton as soon as possible after purchase. Keep on the refrigerator shelf, not on the door. Use within 3 to 5 weeks.

■ Rinsing or washing eggs at home is not recommended. It can actually lead to increased bacterial growth.

■ If eggs crack after you buy them, break into a clean container, cover tightly, refrigerate and use within 2 days. Cook thoroughly.

■ Egg whites and blended whole eggs can be frozen for up to 1 year. Thaw in the refrigerator. Yolks alone do not freeze well.
