There’s no need to crack your head over this – the answer is yes! By storing eggs in the refrigerator, this will help keep the eggs fresh longer. Doing so will also prevent salmonella bacteria which may be present in the eggs from growing to dangerous levels.
If eggs are not properly handled or are eaten raw or lightly cooked, Salmonella can still survive and may cause food-borne illnesses.
TIP: Refrigerate shell eggs at 0 to 4°C and wash your hands between handling of raw food and eggs.
