Practice safe food-handling when it comes to preparing your eggs. This includes:

  • Thoroughly cleaning your hands, as well as the surfaces and utensils that come into contact with raw eggs.
  • Separating eggs from other foods in your grocery cart and grocery bags.
  • Keeping eggs refrigerated at all times.
  • Discard cracked or dirty eggs.
  • Eggs should be cooked until the white and yolk are firm, or until you reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Do not keep eggs warm or at room temperature for more than two hours.
  • Refrigerate unused or leftover egg-containing foods promptly.
  • Avoid eating raw eggs.
