I went to the supermarket to pick up the donated food for a local halfway house and they asked if we wanted eggs. I was sure they did so I took them, a whole heavy boxful. It seems there is a new requirement that if there is a broken or cracked egg in a carton, they can no longer swap one out from another carton as of Jan 1. I don't know if this is general or just NH, but it seems wasteful to me. It works out great for the halfway house, but that' going to be a lot of eggs over a whole chain. The smaller markets might just send the carton home with someone at the end of the day.
It bothers me to participate in wasting that much food. Eggs are cheap - like $0.15 or so - so I would just as soon absorb the cost myself if I pick up a carton with a cracked one. I'll take them home and throw one out.
