Dates on egg cartons and all other food packaging reflect food quality, not food safety. An ‘expiration’ or ‘sell-by’ date on an egg carton tells the grocer to pull the eggs if they haven’t sold by that time. A ‘best-by’ or ‘use-by’ date tells you that your eggs will still be of high quality if you use them by that date.
From time to time, the Colorado Egg Producers sends out information for educators and the general public. When you register you can select which group to join. You can remove your name from the address list at any time.
