I always open the egg carton to for inspection before purchase.
In the past 1-2 years I've have several occasions where I found these spots/smudges (kinda reminds me of mildew stains) on eggs, maybe two or three, that initially looked ok, some time after bringing them home, but never quite this bad.
The first image show the view of their positions when I put them in the hard plastic egg carton for storage in the fridge. There was originally no blemishes, but now you can see the two eggs on the extreme left and right of the top row with these "spots".
The second image is the same positions, but turned upside down. Much worse than the other side. The last two image are closeups.
I'm wondering what produced this? Could it be mildew? Could the plastic carton be blamed? That occurred to me because the under sides, that were in direct contact with the carton, are far more affected.
Can I use them, try to clean them, or are they contaminated?
