I hard boiled some eggs today and saw this for the first time. What is the cause?

Could that egg maybe have been fertilized ? I see something meaty looking there and maybe the extra iron from that made the whites turn grey ? Idk just throwing out some possibilities.

Looks like a double yolker with a meat spot to me. I usually pitch any that have oddities like that but that may be personal preference... usually the double yolkers I’ve gotten are quite bloody and I don’t like eating them, so I pitch them. Haven’t had one with gray egg white though. Does it smell funky?
