    I imagine they are "meat spots," tiny bits of tissue, quite safe to eat. Older hens more commonly lay eggs with meat spots. I see them now and then.

    Safe and happens from time to time. Commercial systems can find that stuff and they don't make it into cartons in stores but it is common for them too.
