    We have an egg with a slight crack...it's not leaking but the shell itself is cracked...I think it made contact with a golf ball.....

    I put it in the fridge and figured I'd ask here if I should discard it or not....I'd hate to waste it, but at the same time it's not worth getting sick over....we'd be eating it tomorrow if that matters....

    ...IMHO it isnt worth the risk (unless you saw it cracked ...took it inside and immediately ate it)... pitch it.

    Since I can't afford to be sick I'd toss it. Its one of those things that you can not be certain of until someone either contracts an illness or doesn't. Then I would ask myself "what were you thinking?" as I spend the next two days in the bathroom over a single questionable egg.
