"Do I need to refrigerate store brought eggs?"


Our Answer:

This is an excellent question!

Eggs that are purchased at the grocery store have been gently washed at the grading station. When they're washed, their protective layer (called the "bloom") is removed. Once this layer is removed, they should be refrigerated at all times.
