Make your Easter Egg Hunt safe this year. If you are dying eggs, be sure you are using food-safe dyes and other food safe decorations. Make sure that your eggs are not outside the refrigerator more than two hours total. That includes decorating and hiding them. If the weather is over 80 degrees, knock down that to 30 minutes total. Don’t hide eggs where they can absorb chemicals from the lawn or be exposed to pets. Hard cooked eggs are actually more perishable than raw, according to Elisa Maloberti from the US Department of Agriculture. If in doubt, toss it out. Be safe, not sorry.
