The Average Age Of A Supermarket Egg May Surprise You..

Well, this is a scary thought… Fresh Eggs Daily recently posted controversial, viral information on Facebook — explaining how the average grocery store egg might be at least 45 days old by the time you buy it! “So today I was shopping and snapped a few photos of some egg cartons,” the post says. “EVERY date I saw on them was between 352-355, meaning that those eggs were put in that carton on the 352nd-355th day of last year. Add to that the 19 days so far this year, and these eggs have all been in the carton for about a month (and could have been laid up to 30 days prior to that) and check out the Sell by dates — these eggs can still sit on the shelf for a few more weeks.”
