How should Easter eggs be handled so they are safe to eat?
As with other potentially dangerous foods, hard-cooked eggs should not be left at room temperature for more than two hours. A suggestion: dye two batches of eggs. Keep one batch in the refrigerator to be eaten and keep the other batch out for decoration.
