Simple Trick to Tell if an Egg Has Gone Bad

Unlike most food expiration dates, federally graded eggs are safe 3-5 weeks after their expiration date. A little trick to see if your eggs are still fresh or not: just fill small pan with water:

  • If the eggs sink completely, then they are still good.
  • If they bob around below the surface, they are still good but should be used soon.
  • If they float sideways to the top, then those eggs are bad and should be tossed immediately!
