Once the eggs and chickens we produce leave our farms, it’s important to us that you’re able to prepare them safely for your family. For instance, did you know that eggs should be stored in the carton and in the coldest part of the refrigerator to ensure their safety? Or that chicken should always be frozen if you don’t plan to use it within two days of purchase? You will find more useful information about chicken safety from the National Chicken Council and egg safety at the Egg Safety Center.
