Celebrate with Confidence This Easter

Keep these handy tips from the Egg Safety Center in mind when decorating, cooking or hiding Easter eggs:

  • Eggs are thoroughly sanitized before being sent to grocery stores and do NOT need to be washed again before being used in Easter recipes and crafts. Improper washing could lead to bacterial contamination.
  • Store eggs in the fridge when they aren’t being used! If eggs are left out of refrigeration for 2+ hours, they should be thrown away to prevent foodborne illness.
  • When stored in the refrigerator, hard-boiled eggs can be safely enjoyed within 1 week of being cooked. Once peeled, hard-boiled eggs should be eaten within two days!
  • Keep eggs fresh by storing the carton in the coldest part of your fridge at 45°F or below – never in the refrigerator door.
  • Wondering if colored Easter eggs will be safe to eat when the hunt is over? If eggs were decorated with food-safe dyes and stored properly in the refrigerator, they are safe to eat!
  • Ensure cold egg dishes, like deviled eggs, stay fresh during feasts by serving a few at a time and refilling as needed.
  • When decorating Easter eggs, be sure to thoroughly wash your hands and workspace before and after handling eggs.
  • Be careful where you hide Easter eggs! Never hide eggs where they can come in contact with lawn chemicals, pets or wild animals.
