Happy World Egg Day! Keep your celebrations safe and delicious
October 14, 2016

World Egg Day is October 14, 2016 and is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the benefits of eggs, in countries all around the world!

In 1966, the International Egg Commission established the second Friday in October as World  Egg Day. Eggs are part of a wide variety of foods, and you can find  nutritious and delicious recipes at the Incredible Edible Egg. Eggs n be a great source of protein and several vitamins and minerals, so you can feel good about your World Egg Day celebrations. Visit the  Egg Nutrition Center for more information.

As you celebrate, make sure you purchase eggs from a refrigerated case, choose eggs with cl ean, uncracked shells, check the date and look for the USDA grade shield. Make sure you keep your eggs refrigerated and make sure you cook your eggs thoroughly.  You’ll probably eat all your eggs in the first setting, but if there are leftovers, promptly refrigerate them and eat within two to three days.
