A commercial egg washer is a machine for washing eggs. In fact, whether eggs should be washed or not is really a controversial topic. If you are in the United States, you will find that the government and other relevant organizations generally do not recommend consumers wash eggs bought from supermarkets. The reason is not that the eggs mentioned above are not good for preservation, but that the eggs have been washed with an egg washing machine . In addition to the United States, currently in Australia and Japan, eggs are usually washed before being marketed.

Why wash eggs?

In recent years, although the multiple outbreaks of avian influenza have caused great panic, egg washing is mainly aimed at another more terrible enemy, namely Salmonella. After eating food contaminated with salmonella, people usually have vomiting, diarrhea, fever, convulsions, and other symptoms within 12 to 72 hours. These symptoms usually last for 4 days to one week. Although they can be eliminated without special treatment, the symptoms caused by salmonella infection may be more serious for special populations such as infants, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with low immune function. If they are not treated in time, they may even be life-threatening.

How to wash eggs?

In order to eliminate salmonella infection caused by eggs, government departments in the United States and other countries have promoted the use of commercial egg washer to clean eggshells on farms. At present, the academic community accepts the positive significance of this approach. A large number of studies have confirmed that cleaning and disinfection of the egg surface can effectively reduce the number of colonies on the shell. Therefore, it can not only avoid Salmonella from entering the inside of the eggshell as much as possible but also prevent bacteria on the egg surface from polluting other foods.
