How long can egg be unrefrigerated before becoming unsafe to eat?

When a chicken lays an egg, it arrives in the world with an antibacterial coating called the ‘bloom.’ If theegg is just lightly brushed off and put in a box, then you can keep it unrefrigerated for about two weeks. (Some recommendations say significantly longer – it’s up to you.

 

If theegg has been washed, then the bloom has been damaged or entirely removed, and thus the egg is vulnerable to bacteria getting in through the pores. A washedegg must be stored in the refrigerator. I wouldn’t trust it a day left out at room temperature.

 

Once even an unwashed egg is refrigerated, it has to be kept refrigerated – if removed from refrigeration, condensation will form, and that will damage the bloom.
