Is it safe to eat expired egg?

leave a comment »

November 2013: I forgot to finish our egg.

Livestrong.com : When stored properly, fresh shell eggs are safe to be consumed 4 to 5 weeks beyond the carton’s date of package.

Check if your eggs are still looking good in appearance, no bad smell.
When it smells toss it
when it’s runny toss it
when you suspect toss it

Some molds can slowly penetrate through the shell and cause dark spots to grow even inside the white and yolk. Eating a moldy egg will likely not pose any serious threat to your health, as the fungus will die from stomach acid, except those with mold allergy.

Salmonella can grow both in the yolk and white, which is why the USDA advises people not to eat raw or undercooked eggs.

Fully cook the expired egg.

Final advice: Ensure our priorities are right.
Safety and health above frugality.
