    We had a customer tell us they got a bad egg yesterday. They said it may have had a hairline fracture in shell? So I took a photo because it looked ok to me, but figure I better ask experts.

    Maybe they were grossed out by the meat spot?

    That little spot is normal on occasion. The egg is fine to eat. But then again, I'm not picky. If it doesn't smell bad or look very abnormal, I fry them up.

    We get those little spots in our egg whites all the time, and we still eat them. I think the egg looks fine. [​IMG]

    They are used to store bought eggs not fresh. They don't know what that is but that's a perfect egg!!! :D
