Check the eggs before you put them in your cart by opening the carton's top. It's possible that if you forget, you'll find a cracked egg in the container. So, what to do then?
The decision to eat or not depends on whether or not you broke the egg yourself or if the egg was already cracked when you brought it into your home..
Immediately dispose of any eggs that appear to be broken or chipped after purchasing them to avoid someone else accidentally cooking with them.
It's advisable to avoid any cartons with cracked eggs inside if possible, as bacteria can quickly enter the yolk or white of an egg through any gaps in the shell.
If you accidentally cracked the egg while bringing it home or moving it to its shelf, you can still use it later if you handle it with care from now on.
Use an airtight container, a lid, and the egg will keep for up to two days in the refrigerator after it has been accidentally cracked.
Feel free to freeze egg whites to extend the life of your eggs. Alternatively, make a scrambled egg combination and store it in a covered container in the freezer.
The USDA certifies that if eggs crack during the hard-boiling procedure, they are safe to peel and consume as usual.
