Easter Eggs:  Are They Safe to Eat?
Easter Eggs: Are They Safe to Eat?

Easter is less than two weeks away.  If you plan to decorate eggs with the kids, but want to eat the eggs after the holiday rather than throw them away, here are some safety tips for you:

  • Wash your hands between all the steps of cooking, cooling, dyeing and decorating.
  • Be sure that all the decorating materials you use are food safe.
  • Keep the eggs refrigerated as much as possible. Keep putting them back into the refrigerator whenever you’re not working with them.
  • Dye the eggs in water warmer than the eggs so they don’t absorb the dye water.
  • If you hide the decorated eggs, put them where they won’t come into contact with pets, other animals or birds or lawn chemicals.
  • After you’ve found all the hidden eggs, throw out any that have cracked or have been out at room temperature for more than two hours. Eat uncracked, refrigerated hard-boiled eggs within a week of cooking them.

Happy Easter!
