Hard-boiled egg, peeled, how long in fridge?

I like a hard boiled egg at work for a snack in the am.

I usually boil about 4 on sunday, peel them, put in bag in fridge and then take 1 each day till gone.

is this safe? somebody told me to leave the peel on.. but to peal them at work would a hassle.

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.

How long have you been doing this and have you gotten sick from it or died?

I searched this, as I was curious, and the answer given was 'one week in the fridge, peeled or unpeeled in a sealed container'.

Grocery stores sell peeled eggs in bags here. I never looked at the expiration dates, but I agree, a week should be fine.

Providing they are fresh when they are hard-boiled, a week should be fine.

I love them with a pinch of salt ... YUM!

I like to put them in a jar of leftover pickle juice. They're always gone before a week is up, but I'd guess they'd last a good long time in the pickle juice.

I think he's still alive or we've been hacked.

I love hardboiled eggs! I think up to a week or so in a sealed container is okay. I'm not dead yet...I think...

No, I'm okay.

Well, he hasn't posted in two days. Who knows what may have happened since. He might be dead by now.

Those eggs that are sold already peeled in plastic? Nitrogen added? If, when you open them, and don't wrap them up tight after opening, the yolk starts protruding out the side after a few days.

The egg shell is a nifty container for hard boiled eggs.

I would think those are meant to be eaten the same day they're purchased.
