Why we do
grade eggs? Grade requirements are set for eggs to protect the consuming public from undue risk. In grading eggs, the factors
of interior quality, weight, cleanliness and shell construction are considered. These factors are related to safety, wholesomeness
and quality. Eggs are graded in a registered egg station to ensure they are handled and packed in a sanitary environment.
Regulations in place to protect consumers require that grading
stations that are graded as Canada A (consumer grade eggs) must be clean and free of leaks, cracks or other defects that could
present food safety problems.
