Normally I have put my hard boil eggs after cooled back into the carton unpeeled and then peel right before eating. However I've been experimenting with different methods for easier peeling and one of them is to peel right after cooking (which does seem to help btw). Well this morning I made a few extra beyond what I needed for breakfast, peeled them all, and put about 6 back in the clear plastic carton and into the fridge. Should I be worried at all that the carton could contain some bacteria or other baddies that I put my newly cooked and peeled eggs in?

Salmonella is most commonly contracted from bacteria on raw, unwashed eggshells (especially those with the bloom, although these are a wonderfully natural freshness preserver) and chicken poo(faeces) transferring. Egg cartons might conceivably contain these bacteria.
That might be a worry especially if the eggs were recently in the egg carton uncoooked.
