Eggs are one of theВ favorite meals for breakfast, mainly because they can be prepared very easily. Also, they areВ highly nutritious and healthy.
Almost all people around the world are buying eggs and keep them in the fridge or at room temperature. Recently, there was aВ debate about how the eggsВ should be kept.
There is a risk for the eggs to getВ bacteria called salmonella if they are not kept in the fridge. There is a publication about this topic fromВ Journal of Food Protection, where it is shown thatВ salmonella can enter more easilyВ in the egg if it is non-cold.
On the other side,В the National Public RadioВ states that eggs shouldn’t be kept in the fridge. They also state thatВ there are numerous measures of protection against salmonella undertaken, including inspections, washing, and tracking of the eggs from the supplier to the stores.В The majority of chickens in Europe areВ vaccinated against salmonella, so thereВ is no need to worry about.
FDA reported thatВ vaccines are a pretty efficient against the bacteria. “Eggs should not be kept at a room temperature for more than two hours”, saysВ Marianne Gravely, a technical information expert at the USDAвЂ™s Food Safety and Inspection Service. We can’t see or check if an egg isВ pathogen-free. The bacteria can causeВ food poisoning without anyВ impact of the taste, the smell, or the appearance of the egg.
No one can be sure if theВ chicken is not infested with salmonella. There will be always chanceВ that the eggsВ contain salmonella,В whether they come from a grocery store, a farmerвЂ™s market, or the backyard of your neighbor contain.
The final decision about how you will keep the eggs in the future is up to you!
