How To Tell How Fresh Eggs Are

When you buy a dozen eggs at the grocery store, how old do you think they are? The answer might surprise you. 

Fresh Eggs Daily put up a post on Facebook that explained your eggs might be as much as 45 days old by the time they are sold to you.

“So today I was shopping and snapped a few photos of some egg cartons. 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.”

Learning what food labels mean is extremely valuable when shopping. On every egg carton there is a number that follows the calendar. The number printed on the carton will read between 1 and 365. 1 would be January 1st and 365 would be December 31st. Armed with this information you can figure out exactly when a carton of eggs was packaged and how fresh they are.
