I don't know what to make of this... The delivery driver put my hard drives... In the fridge?! Because the box says new egg?!?!

@chuck eggs don't even need to be in the fridge... unless we're maybe in the Jurassic Park world... :blob_grinning_sweat:

@packbat @eloisa Thats pretty good sleuthing.

I didn't get to talk to the driver, so i'll never really know the -real- reason why, i only inferred the egg bit. But this package was delivered yesterday and fedex insisted it was dropped off on location and for me to triple check before filing a dispute.

well, they were right. it -was- delivered, just not at all where I expected it to be! 😂

OMG! Can you sum up, plz? I can't read! I'm European! HALP! D:

@eloisa @packbat TL;DR - Americans have a problem with salmonella and chicken shit on eggs. so please refrigerate your eggs

@chuck @eloisa Specifically, the United States deals with salmonella by requiring eggs be cleaned instead of by requiring the chickens to be vaccinated, and cleaning the egg removes a protective layer on the shell that the European food system relies on to protect the contents from contaminants.

@packbat @chuck I'm horrified! And at the same time I understand why, now!

Thank you so much for that explanation! :blobcatsurprised: --> still in horror

@packbat @chuck @eloisa I read somewhere the protective layer is washed even on european eggs, but they re-apply an artificial one. so in theory at least there isn't any chicken shit on them. But we refrigerate them anyway so idk

@MightyPork @packbat @chuck in my country it comes filthy. We have to wash them right before use in the kitchen. :blob_dizzy_face:
