For food safety, it is important and recommended that eggs be refrigerated so to prevent the growth of Salmonella. The refrigeration of eggs also preserves the taste and the texture of the egg. In Europe, eggs are not usually washed. Therefore the shells are dirtier. However, by not washing them the cuticle is left undamaged, and they do not require any refrigeration. In the United States, eggs are washed and result in damaging the cuticle of the egg, and because of this, the eggs need to be refrigerated.

When trying to decide which eggs are best too buy cage-free eggs are a better choice ethically than using eggs that come from caged hens. By choosing cage-free eggs, you can help get chickens out of the battery cages that many still live in. By purchasing free run, and certified organic eggs you can help promote a better industry for the animals. In battery cages, a hen’s behavior is severely restricted, by not allowing them to express their natural behavior, for things like just scratching at the ground, perching, laying their eggs in a secluded nest box, flapping their wings and having dust baths. As a result of this unnatural confinement, and severe overcrowding, chickens that are kept in battery cages suffer from frustration, injuries, and possible disease. The good news is all over North America more universities, restaurants, and municipalities are making the switch to using cage-free eggs.
