Should I refrigerate eggs?
How long can eggs be unrefrigerated before becoming unsafe to eat?

I got 4 dozen eggs this weekend (from actual chickens on a farm that were laid yesterday), and they sat in my car overnight. Would they still be good to eat? I put them in the fridge this morning. I'd say they sat for 20 hours in my car.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

how hot did it get while sitting in your car? Eggs are ok for about 3 days, but not if they baked in your car. –  Rikon Aug 15 '11 at 17:17
You're MacGyver. Why didn't you make a refrigerator from some shoelaces, a length of pipe, duct tape, and your Swiss Army Knife? –  BobMcGee Aug 15 '11 at 17:36
Depends which country you live in. In general eggs are designed to be kept warm underneath the hen! –  TFD Aug 16 '11 at 1:18
Looks like my question got 1000 views, so I earned a badge. Answering some questions. @Rikon - I live in Madison, WI, so in August, it's pretty hot. I was visiting family, so the car was probably 90 degrees for at least 6 hours out of the day. The rest of that time was near room temperature. –  Mr. MacGyver Nov 4 '14 at 20:34
