Leaving Eggs in The Car


Eggs are perishable and contain salmonella bacteria which can multiply rapidly in hot, humid conditions, like inside a car.

How soon eggs spoil when left in a car depends on factors like temperature, humidity, and duration.

Eggs left in a warm car can grow bacteria quickly and go bad within 2 hours.

Eggs left in a cold car during winter are usually fine as long as the temperature stays consistently refrigerator-like.

Eggs that "sweat" or form moisture droplets start to deteriorate.

Previously refrigerated eggs spoil faster than fresh farm eggs when left in a car.

Eggs left in a hot car spoil in less than 2 hours as bacteria growth is rapid.
