Egg Time out of Refrigerator??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So, we left a dozen eggs out of the refrigerator from this morning until this afternoon.  I've put them back in, but do you think they will be okay to eat?  Thanks!!

They will be fine if they just sat at room temp for the morning.

No other animal works this hard to crap in its own drinking water.

Eggs can sit at room temp for a long time before being unusable.

Unwashed eggs can be stored up to 7 months unrefrigerated; washed eggs about 6. Refrigerated they'll last about 9 months either way smile.png

I coat my eggs in mineral oil and leave them on the counter 24/7 until they're used. The US is just about the only country that refrigerates eggs.
