Outdated eggs....

How long past the due date on the egg carton are they still good? I have about 15 eggs left in my carton before I went on a huge binge, the due date is March 9th and today is the 27th, are they still good or should I just throw them out? How can you tell when they are no good other than the date?

Thanks alot..

I'm on meat/eggs this week, so they would get ate quickly, whatcha think?

Thanks again!

I'd toss them. Eggs are so cheap, why take a chance on becomming sick?

Honestly, for many years I didn't even know there was an expiration date for eggs. :blush: (this was quite a while ago) I never used to use a lot of eggs so I would have a dozen for up to a couple of months. As long as it looked ok when I cracked it open I ate it. Obviously, I'm still here. I'd still eat them, but that's just me.

If you really aren't comfortable with that then as Tennessee said, throw 'em. They're cheap enough.

Well, personally I never go by expiration dates. You can tell if an egg is still good by putting it in a pan of water. If they float, supposedly they aren't good. But if you were going to bake them.... use your nose. That's what they did before expiration dates.

This reminds me of my daughter. Mom, is this still good? Well, how does it smell? Is there any mold on it? If the answer is o.k. and no, it's still good.

Really fresh = sink to the bottom and lay on their side
Less fresh = sink to the bottom and lean at a 45 degree angle
Not so fresh but still usable = sink to bottom & stand on one end vertically (these are good for boiling because they are easier to peel)
Rotten = Floater - toss it!

Eggs last quite a long time..We used to have a family friend who would give us a basket fulls of pheasant eggs and it would take us well over a month to eat them all and they didnt go bad. I wouldnt worry about it unless they smell bad once you crack them open
