Grocery store handlers: Be careful with those Egg Cartons

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

What you see is a six row by six row styrofoam container of Sunups eggs in the fridge at Sam’s Club in Roswell,NM. Two of the 36 are cracked. In case you have to know, the egg in upper right corner and second one underneath will never be ingested by a human unless it is one of the beggars outside the building.┬áThe other 34 appeared intact and edible.

I wonder if Sam’s Club employees are authorized to repackage the non-cracked eggs and put them back on the shelf or if they all go to waste?

This all has to do with the fundamental problem of transporting groceries as quickly as possible without damaging the goods your are trying to move. It also begs the question: Were the eggs cracked at chicken farm/factory where eggs were packed OR did it happen as egg cartons were unloaded from delivery truck and placed on the shelf. The shelf stocking personnel are under pressure to get items on the shelf as quickly as possible for hungry consumers.

We though it might have something to do with snow storm Goliath as many truckers were delayed or stranded in route to delivery points. Probably not, since we have noticed cartons with cracked eggs year round.

So the upshot of all this is to be sure and check your egg carton before walking out of store and thank you to Sam’s Club for the low prices and friendly work staff.

Even if two of the 36 eggs are cracked, entire carton is wasted
