Can I Use Eggs After The "Sell By" Date?
Eggs should be used within three weeks of the "sell-by" date. Be sure to keep eggs in the refrigerator at under 40 degrees Fahrenheit. When purchasing eggs, make sure they are sold in a refrigerator case and that none of the eggs are cracked. When you get home, put the eggs in the refrigerator as soon as possible and keep them in their original carton so you have the date.
The egg rack on the refrigerator door is not the best place to store eggs because the temperature is warmer there than on the interior shelves.
