You probably know that some people keep eggs in the refrigerator ignoring the danger to their health and the health of their family, but you probably didn’t know that keeping the eggs in cold areas contributes to the bacteria that contaminate the shell to stay alive. These bacteria include Salmonella, which is very harmful to our health.
According to several studies, the eggs kept at room temperature contained a lower percentage of bacteria than those that were kept in the refrigerator. This is due to the fact that the eggs become contaminated when the hen puts and once they’re lead to refrigerator, bacteria are preserved.
Salmonella tends to multiply rapidly when it’s in cold places contaminating everything in the refrigerator.
In some European countries, it is forbidden to store eggs in the refrigerator. There are even penalties for those who keep eggs in cold places. In the U.S. A. people can store eggs whatever way they like, but they are advised not to store them in cold areas.
