A carton of eggs that expired on March 22nd is shown Friday, March 30, 2018 in Phoenix. This year's Easter eggs may already hard-boiled, dyed and laid in a basket, but next year's batch might be a little less fresh. State lawmakers are on the verge of passing a proposal that would put a 45-day expiration date label on Grade A eggs, clearing the way for a longer window of use than the a current 24-day sell-by date. That means consumers could be cracking eggs that left the farm more than six weeks ago. (AP Photo/Matt York)
