    If those dots are brownish and weeping out of the egg chunk it out asap !
    ( take a wiff of the egg also , your nose is your best guide here )
    Chances are that egg's going rotten , you could have an olfactory explosion soon .
    Not fun to smell/ clean up & if it blows it will be harmful to the good eggs left .

    When in doubt chunk it out ...better safe than sorry.
    Smell first and if not sure then very LIGHTLY shake it ...if it sounds liquidy/ sloshy when shaking it's a time bomb !
