Are cracked eggs safe to eat
Cracked eggs are safe to eat if they are cooked thoroughly. However, cracked eggs are unsafe to eat raw because when an egg cracks, the yolk gets exposed to air and bacteria can enter the egg through the cracks in the shell. So if you have cracked eggs, it is best to cook them thoroughly before eating them. If you accidentally crack an egg yourself, you can still use the cracked egg later if you handle it with care. Place the mistakenly-cracked egg into a clean, airtight container, top it with a lid, and store the egg in the refrigerator for up to two days. When you’re ready to use it in your recipe, cook it fully to kill off any potential bacteria.
