The Secret Life of Eggs

I’m not a fan of expiration dates in general–see yesterday’s post–but if stamping them on eggs (along with the batch number) saves half a billion eggs per year at Walmart alone…I can stomach them.

Yes, the Walmart video below is a nice bit of propaganda, but it’s a result of a genuine effort by that retailer to reduce their waste. And that effort is paying dividends.

The video contains some fabulous illustrations of the resources embedded in our eggs (and food supply). Plus, it features an image of a Manhattan-sized omelette!
