Dairy & Eggs

Information about how to safely buy, store, and serve eggs and dairy products.

Dairy products and eggs provide a wealth of nutrition benefits. FDA has put regulations in place to help prevent contamination of dairy products and eggs on the farm and during shipping and storage.

The most effective way to prevent foodborne-related illness is by knowing how to buy, store, handle, and cook dairy and eggs — or foods that contain them — safely.
