Shelf life of shell eggs

April 12, 2019 at 3:03 PM

New Zealand Food Safety (MPI) has amended the shelf life requirements for clean un-cracked eggs to 35 days at room temperature. This change does not affect the shelf life requirements for other types of eggs e.g. cracked or broken eggs. Operators may still choose to chill their clean un-cracked eggs if they choose to do so.
