With the big nationwide egg recall this week, I learned that unless you’re looking for some special qualities in your eggs, you might as well buy the cheapest ones you can find, because most of the eggs come from the same few distributors and just get packed into boxes with different brand names stamped on them.
My current carton of eggs came from Costco and cost me less than $2 for a carton of 24 eggs. Better yet, my particular box wasn’t on the recall list (although the brand turned up in the second wave of the recall). I could have paid more for Lucerne eggs from Safeway and ended up with eggs from the same farm in the midwest.
