To fridge or not to fridge – how should we really store eggs?

In the United States, eggs are usually kept in the fridge, while in Europe and some other parts of the world eggs are not refrigerated. Read on to find out which is the healthiest way to store eggs.

The way you should store eggs depends on the country, but if you are not sure about how they were produced, just keep them in the fridge. Note that it's a bad idea to keep eggs in a fridge door, as the eggs will experience rapid change of temperature every time you open the fridge, which will increase the risk of infections.

Which way of storing eggs do you prefer? Was this information new for you? Do you have something to add or discuss?

We lived for a time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We always bought eggs at the egg market. They were kept in a room with no cooling. In the summer when the temps were upwards of 120 degrees. They never put them in a cooler place. I never knew anyone there that got sick from eating eggs.

Very interesting. Eggs are kept on the shelves in the supermarket here after purchase I put straight in fridge. Grew up in the sixties. That's what I was taught but never knew why. Thanks for finally answering that question

We have over 200 hens, We sell eggs to the local grocery stores. I wash the eggs and they are put in the fridge until we take them to the store. We have been doing this for over 6 years. People love our jumbo brown eggs, which are also weighed, so we have numerous sizes. But our jumbo's are the most favorite.

In UK (Our house anyway) the eggs are kept in the fridge, but, not in the door. We are not part of the EU anymore so, we're different! Hooray!

Until Hawks,'Possums,Cats[those who got away] and other critters killed them,I had 25 laying Hens and gave most of the eggs away to Neighbors and others who had Kids. I didn't wash the eggs and told them to wash them before eating them.

Our eggs (NZ) are kept in the fridge and are not removed until needed. Alas! they are housed in the door!
