Eggs Weigh Less Than They're Supposed To!!!

mlculler | Aug 16, 201111:18 AM     20

I use XL eggs in many recipes, and I started weighing them after buying. Turns out, I'm getting ripped off. Out of an 18-pack of XL eggs, 1 was broken on the bottom (I couldn't see that when checking in the store), 7 were 62 grams (which is LARGE), and only 9 were XL/64 grams. What is the deal? I even bought JUMBO eggs, and only ONE was JUMBO. The rest were XL, according to their weight.

Anyone else have this problem? And where do I complain? XL eggs do cost more, but I'm just getting LARGE eggs in their place. I've bought the LARGE before, and, you guessed it---most of them were of MEDIUM weight.

Any advice would be welcome!
