My water was contaminated for a week because a storm damaged the water company near me, so i could not wash any of my eggs. So they were refrigerated for a couple a days, and i got to wash them today. Then after they were to washed they were left out in room temperature for about 7 hours, because i had to go to work and i forgot to put them back in the refrigerator. Are they eggs ruined?
If you have a lot then you could break one and see what is in there.If it is good then the others should be good too but I dont think so...
I'd have no problem eating those eggs. I always break them in a separate bowl before cooking- usually I'm looking at fertility, though!

The washing water was no longer contaminated.

The US is one of the few countries that refrigerates eggs.

They only sat out for 7 hours. No big deal.

Washed eggs don't last as long as unwashed eggs, because the "bloom" is removed. It does NOT necessarily increase the absorption of bacteria.
