Frequently Asked Questions

All About EB Eggs

Are Eggland’s Best Eggs refrigerated before sale?

Yes. All Eggland's Best Eggs must be collected from flocks within 24 hours of production. In most operations, eggs are mechanically conveyed to a processing plant within hours of lay to ensure optimal freshness. On remote farms, eggs are collected frequently during the day and are placed in refrigerated coolers and held at 45°F before transfer to a processing plant. After washing, grading, and packing, Eggland's Best Eggs are placed in a cooler under USDA supervision and held at a temperature between 40°F and 45°F before distribution in refrigerated vehicles. FDA regulations require eggs to be held under refrigeration from the time of shipping from the plant to the point of consumption.
