Ok this is my question if you hard boil eggs and refrigerate them at night and then leave them out all day would that make them safe to eat like a week or so later?

My rule, if they smell funky they probably are past the prime. Otherwise enjoy. I mean the worse consequences is you learn your lesson and spend the day in the bathroom.

That wouldn't fly in the food service industry. So you can think of this question as: would you eat hardboiled eggs from a restaurant who left them out all day?

Honestly, considering the price of eggs, it's really just not worth the risk. Just hard boil some more ... and get them in a cooler case if you need to travel or whatever happened in your case.

Other countries don't put eggs in the fridge, and they stay fresh for a while. But once cooked, all bets are off. They last only a few days, even boiled.
