    A friend of mine got 6 dozen eggs from me last night, he got distracted when he got home and left them in the truck.
    He found the eggs when he got to work and put them in the fridge. He calls from work and wants to know if i think they are safe
    to eat.They were in the truck from about 9pm to about 6:30am. Our temps were a bit cooler last night, but the eggs had been in
    my fridge when he got them.Some of the locals are telling them they will be fine, just make sure they are cooked well. What do you

    They are absolutely fine. Some people keep their eggs on the kitchen counter rather than the fridge.

    This was what I was thinking, but I just wanted to be sure.

    They came out of a 107 degree chicken. As far as what he should with the eggs,fry,scramble, bake, poach,boil.......get my point.
  7. In Europe, they don't wash their eggs. This keeps a protective coating intact so that they don't require refrigeration, at all.
    I'm sure the eggs are fine.

    Thank you all so much. I ate eggs fresh from the 107 degree hen my whole life, but I just didn't want to take a chance on being wrong in this case
    with the weather being so hot and the eggs having been in the refridgerator.
    Will feel better telling him to eat them knowing I ask all of you first!
