Q:

I drove with eggs unrefrigerated for about 5 hours in a moderately warm car (maybe 60+degrees). Are the eggs safe to eat?

A:

Your eggs should be fine. They have aged a little so won't be as fresh. Be sure to cook them and do not eat them raw. I assume these are fresh eggs and not cooked. If cooked then throw them away.
