I am not sure if everyone even notices those numbers on the end of the carton.

The sell by date is used by retailers to dictate when they should be sold – no later than that date.

They will still be safe in your refrigerator for up to four to five weeks after the Julian date with proper storage.

The most accurate date to consider with eggs is a date placed on the egg carton by the manufacturer called the “pack date”.

This date specifies the julian date (numerical day of the year) on which the eggs were packaged.

But I personally would rather eat a fresh egg any day.

Our selection is carefully chosen to fulfill the needs of small scale poultry raisers and backyard farms, to satisfy everyone who raises just one chicken or thousands!This number is not required so some cartons might have it and some might not.I personally prefer cartons with this date because in my area foods often sit on grocery shelves for awhile or they aren’t properly rotated so they could be much older than what I want to serve my family.So, is greatly reduced if the eggs are not kept constantly refrigerated as they may become unsafe to eat.Eggs should always be stored in the fridge right before and after use.
