It often happens that we buy dozens of eggs from the market and when we break them to make them, they turn out to be bad. Many times we store eggs in the fridge for several days and later do not understand whether the eggs are bad or not.

In fact, if you accidentally eat these rotten eggs, then you may have food poisoning problems and may complain of stomach pain, upset stomach, diarrhea and vomiting. So let us tell you today how many days eggs get spoiled and how we can identify rotten eggs.
How long do you keep eggs in the fridge?

Old or stale eggs will go down in a pot of water and stand.
If the egg floats in the upper surface of the water, then understand that your egg is bad. Throw it away immediately.
listen to the egg
Bring the egg near the ear and stir. If there is a sound of spilling, then it is a bad egg.
There is not much sound when fresh eggs are shaken.
identify by breaking
Crack the egg on a bowl or plate. If a strange smell is coming from the egg, then it is a spoiled egg.
identify with boiled eggs
