Staying Safe While Eating Easter Eggs

If you plan on munching on those easter eggs after you've dyed them, pay extra attention to how you cook them.

Specialists say when boiling and dying eggs, makes sure they are not out of the fridge for more than two hours. Use coloring that says its food safe. Don't let the eggs dry overnight, and keep them in a separate container than the original egg carton.

They could have some dirt and contamination on the outside so after you've boiled them then they're now clean and a ready to eat food so you don't want to put them back into that dirty, potentially dirty carton that they came in so put them into a bowl or something else where they can be clean and then they can be ready to eat.

If you're using the dyed eggs for an easter egg hunt-don't hide them on the ground or other dirty places where they could pick up bacteria, and be sure to enjoy those eggs within 7 days.
