    One of my delivery customers asked if it's okay to store UN-washed eggs at room temp after they have been refrigerated.
    What should I tell them.

    I'd keep them in the fridge if that's where they started. If they intend to only leave them out for a little while before cooking them, they'd probably be fine, but I don't think they'd be good for long time storage. When they're taken out of the fridge, they're going to sweat, which I'd imagine will compromise the bloom.

    Thank you. That was my suspicion but wanted to get some advise.
