Do eggs go bad if left out of the refridgerator

I left eggs out about 5 hours ago, will they be ok to eat, or should I throw them out? How long can they be left out?

Each hour at room temp is equivalent to a day in the refrig. They should be fine unless they were very close to expiring.

Eggs have a pretty long ass shelf life; What Jeff W said is true too.

I remember doing an experiment with eggs about 2 years ago where my professor left them out for a WEEK. They were actually still edible after being cooked which was very surprising.

Euros don't refrigerate eggs.

I live in the middle east. The 'corner store' type shops have eggs just laying around on the shelves and it's often around 100 degrees. To date they haven't gotten me.

Re: Do eggs go bad if left out of the refridgerator

I leave eggs out (I'm a "euro")... I normally eat my eggs quick because I like eggs, but I'm happy to eat them even after 2 or 3 weeks or more if needs be. Just give them a sniff when you crack them, its pretty easy to tell if they have gone bad.

My mother in law has eggs even longer than this and she doesn't seem to have any problems.

Seriously though, 5 hours out of the fridge, I think you'll b ok.

Re: Do eggs go bad if left out of the refridgerator

I've left them out for a week and they have been fine.

However, professional chefs generally cook with ones that are fresh and refrigerated. For one thing, fresh hard-boiled eggs are easier to peel and sometimes have a better colored yolk.

I don't know how long. They are not fresh daily.

They are not fertilized. You are eating a chicken's period, not its baby.

Wow that's pretty gross I'm never eating eggs again!

o.k. maybe not but I did have a question if the date on my eggs is past do I throw em out or crack and sniff? Or is there something you can tell just by looking at them?

Edit: So caviar is fish period right? And now I can tell those tree huggers to STFU when they say "Everytime you eat an egg it's an abortion!!"
