Just out of curiosity...I was surprised on moving to France to discover that eggs are kept on an uncooled grocery store shelf. Also, I know people who raise chickens keep the eggs in a bowl on the counter. Are eggs in the US really old by the time they get to the store? Or is this a weird health regulation? Is it actually necessary to keep eggs in the refrigerator?
