Shelf Life of Hard Boiled Egg Unrefrigerated?

Answer

During Easter season, many people will dye hard boiled eggs as part of their tradition for celebrating the holiday. The shelf life of a unrefrigerated hard boiled egg is a health concern if using real eggs and not plastic eggs. The United States Department of Agriculture recommends you only eat those hard boiled eggs that have been left out of the refrigerator for two hours or less. The shelf life of a refrigerated hard boiled egg is much longer. It can be eaten up to one week with no health concern.
