USA Egg recall video:
If you have eggs that have been recalled, do not eat them. Take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund.
Edible eggs should be refrigerated at 45 degrees Fahrenheit at all times. All cracked or dirty eggs should never be eaten.
Raw eggs in their shells and cartons should keep up to five weeks from their packaging date in the refrigerator.
To be safe, egg shells should be washed first. Cook eggs until both the white and the yolk are firm and eat promptly after cooking.
There’s no way to tell from simply looking if an egg is contaminated with salmonella or not.
