  • i wouldn't eat it, but it's totally normal... really nothing you can do about it... you could call the company, but it's a chance you take with buying eggs...

  • This is more common with organic eggs and the eggs are perfectly safe to eat. However, if you are Jewish & keep kosher, you shouldn't eat it.
