    well, the egg smelled great and tasted FANTASTIC! had it with some bacon and guacamole ... yum!!

    @steve - the eggs are very fresh, was really more concerned about salmonella or something, from them being too warm for too long ...

    @chao - well, now we shall see!!

    Believe me, you'll know if you open up a bad egg.

    Refrigeration slows the natural degradation of egg quality. One day on the counter eggs are equivalent to one week in the fridge eggs. So your eggs quickly go from AA quality to B. This is not the same as spoilage. The whites spread further, the yolk doesn't stand out as much, but it can still be a perfectly tasty egg.

    Net -- I think you'll be fine, especially based on all the reassuring info people have shared. I learned a lot about eggs in this thread -- two facts I didn't know: 1) that you could order eggs online -- from Tropical Traditions no less, and 2) that eggs are FINE not refrigerated (really, I had no idea). I am lax about my butter and cheese being refrigerated but didn't know about eggs. Very cool!

    Enjoy all your eggs! Frittatas, omlettes, deviled eggs, the possibilities are endless.

    Yeah, I'm not sure people are considering that your eggs really weren't room temp, sound like they got hot, presumably for several days.

    If the eggs are cooked to a minimum 160 deg F, then the risk of Salmonellosis is nil. according to http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Fact_Sheets...rs/index.asp#9

    Would they refund/replace just for that? That's 20%!

    It takes a rather large colony of salmonella to make you sick, so as long as you're cooking your eggs (even if the yolks are soft) I wouldn't worry about it. I'd just avoid drinking them raw.
