Where do you keep your eggs after you buy at the local store? Do you keep them in the fridge is? If you are in North America, Australia, Japan or Scandinavia it is probably yes, but, surprisingly, not everyone does. People from other countries tend to keep the eggs at room temperature, although in some cases may be harmless, can sometimes be harmful to health. Keep eggs in the fridge could be exposed to the dangers of certain bacteria such as Salmonella, which are particularly harmful to health.
Several studies indicate that eggs are kept at room temperature have a lower amount of bacteria that are kept in the refrigerator. If you put in the fridge contaminated eggs and preserved bacteria begins to multiply rapidly, contaminating everything in the fridge too. This is especially true in the case of Salmonella because cold environment stimulates the rapid proliferation.
Furthermore, one of the bad things of these bacteria that cause food poisoning do not affect the taste, smell or appearance of food. There is no way to know if a chicken is infected with salmonella or not, so it is possible that eggs, whether they come from a grocery store, a farmers’ market, or the backyard of his neighbor contain salmonella. It is still up to you to decide how you want to store the eggs, but you should be aware of the risks they are taking. Prevention is the best cure, and that prevention is better than cure.
