How Can We Help You?
Have a question about egg safety, handling or preparation? We've got answers.
The Egg Safety Center represents commercial egg producers, which follow the FDA Egg Safety Rule and state/federal regulatory programs.
Many safeguards are in place on commercial egg farms, through processing and transport, and in the store. Shell eggs produced in the U.S. are subject to oversight from both Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and several states have additional programs. Provided these safeguards are followed, safe and wholesome eggs can be produced in a variety of housing environments. In comprehensive university research by the Coalition for Sustainable Egg Supply, there were no differences in egg safety and quality between the three different hen housing environments that were studied.
