Checking eggs in the United States


Because our chicken eggs are not fertilized by roosters, we could permit someone who found a blood spot to simply remove the spot and eat the rest. However, because no major loss is involved, and because we are customarily stricter than truly necessary regarding eggs and blood spots, one should not eat the rest.

Nonetheless, a mixture of eggs in which such an egg was included will not be prohibited, and a vessel in which it was cooked should only be kept for 24 hours without use, but need not be kashered.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:61)

Have a great day,
