Are my eggs ruined??

Man, I could just kick myself! I bought a dozen eggs yesterday, along with a lot of other groceries, and forgot all about them! (they were hidden by a loaf of bread) They've been sitting on the floor of my kitchen at room temperature for over 24 hours. Their history, aren't they??

I wouldn't eat them. That's me though. I don't know what the safety hazards are.

I see that you are in Texas... is your kitchen particularly warm? I have seen many people storing the eggs at room temperature, but in a cool place... and think about supermarkets... they just keep them on the aisles... I would use them as quickly as possible but if it was just overnight, the room temperature wasn't so high and the eggs are fresh enough they should be okay.

SAFE HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS: To prevent illness from bacteria: keep eggs refrigerated, cook eggs until yolks are firm, and cook foods containing eggs thoroughly.

Chill Properly
  • Cooked eggs, including hard-boiled eggs, and egg-containing foods should not sit out for more than 2 hours. Within 2 hours either reheat or refrigerate.
  • Use hard-cooked eggs (in the shell or peeled) within 1 week after cooking
  • Use frozen eggs within one year. Eggs should not be frozen in their shells. To freeze whole eggs, beat yolks and whites together. Egg whites can also be frozen by themselves.
  • Refrigerate leftover cooked egg dishes and use within 3-4 days. When refrigerating a large amount of a hot egg-containing leftover, divide it into several shallow containers so it will cool quickly.

When in doubt, throw it out.

I noticed when we were in Scotland that in the grocery stores the eggs are kept unrefrigerated. But like MH said, when it doubt, throw it out...

My sister had chickens and kept her eggs on the counter. I broke one open that she gave me and it had an embro and blood in it! I never took another egg from her :o)
I wouldn't eat them after they had been refrigerated and then left out.

I thought that you could only leave eggs out that have never been in the fridge. But once put in fridge, they have to stay cold or go bad
