    So if you were to buy US eggs from a wet market stored at room temp, salmonella poisoning is likely, unlikely?

    That's what's confusing. In the UK eggs aren't kept in the fridge. (in supermarkets) And yet, they do seem very clean and 'processed'.

    US eggs are washed which removes the cuticle which means they are exposed to the air and so need to be chilled. They should not be left a room temperature long. UK and other European countries do not wash the eggs so they can be stored at room temperature. (I believe the NZ and Australian eggs are the same). I still put eggs ion the fridge here regardless.

    I was given 12 Korean eggs for free at Fusion today by the excited lady at the checkout because I'd bought ice cream. Deeply random promotions here.
