Easter Egg Safety

Posted: Updated:

The Benton Franklin Health District is giving out tips for everyone to stay safe this Easter. They say to reduce the risk of illness wash your hands and keep Easter eggs cold.

They say hard-boiled eggs should have no cracks and must be refrigerated before decorating. Also choose a food-safe dye if you'll be eating the eggs.

The Health District says to use plastic eggs as opposed to real ones for Easter egg hunts.

But if you decide to use real ones try to keep eggs away from pets, water, dirt, and sunny spots.
