Eggs are usually placed in their final container as part of the processing operation. Traditionally, the consumer package is the one-dozen pulp fiber or polystyrene foam container. These, in turn, are placed in either 15-dozen wire baskets, or 15- or 30-dozen corrugated cardboard cases for transport.
Other packaging includes single or multiple plastic over-wrapped filler flats with 30 eggs per flat, 6- and 18-egg cartons, and multiple filler flat units placed in cardboard sleeves. Size and grade labels must meet the letter-size restrictions of the regulations. Other labeling requirements include all or some of the following: source, nutritional information, food safety requirements, and sell-by dates.
