Checking eggs for blood spots


We have noted the prohibition against eating eggs that contain blood spots.

Since the great majority of eggs do not contain blood, one may eat foods made with eggs even if the eggs cannot be checked, as in the case of hard-boiled eggs. However, one who does have the opportunity to check eggs before using them should do so.

(Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 66:8)

Have a great day,
