Customer Question

Hi. I just purchased an egg from a local vendor and ate one of the two and noticed it tasted funny. I smelled the egg and it was definately spoiled. What course of action should I take so I won't get sick. I don't know how long they were on the shelf since they weren't dated. I appreciate your help.

Hi. Most likely this is just a spoiled egg and not a bacterial problem but for now I'd suggest you drink plenty of liquids and take a Lactobacillus probiotic. That should keep you from getting ill.
