Hello! I apologize in advance for burdening your forum with my layman question, but I felt that your more educated perspectives were needed in this situation. I've been searching for an answer on Google for an hour with no conclusive answer. I fried three eggs this morning (which I like undercooked) and did not notice this until I had already consumed one. I have seen chalaza in eggs often but never long and tough like this one. I was going to report it to the store and see about telling my doctor that I may have consumed some, but I figured I'd do some research first. I poked around at it for a while when I saw it, hoping it would just break apart like the rest of the egg, but it was very tough and springy. I left it on the table for a few hours and it shriveled up as you can see in the second picture. Please let me know if this is just a weird looking chalaza or if I need to inform the store of worms! Thank you for your time.
