According to section 3-202.11 of the FDA Food Code, if a temperature other than 41°F is specified by law governing the distribution of a potentially hazardous food, such as laws governing milk, molluscan shellfish, and shell eggs, the food may be received at the specified temperature. Current laws for interstate shipment of shell eggs allows a temperature of 45°F. more
