Eggs are safe after best-before date
BRITISH eggs can be eaten up to two days after their best-before date, according to the latest food safety advice. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) advice is part of a drive to cut waste and carries the proviso that the eggs should be cooked thoroughly. The FSA said salmonella contamination levels in UKproduced eggs are low, and salmonella is killed by thorough cooking. But it warned consumers not to eat anything past its use-by date as it could put their health at risk.
