A meat spot is a piece of oviduct (reproductive tract) dislodged during the formation of the egg. Meat spots, which look like small pieces of meat, are usually found in the albumen (egg white). It is rare to find a meat spot in a commercial egg because eggs with meat spots are typically removed during candling when the eggs are graded. Eggs with meat spots are safe to eat, but if you do not like how a meat spot looks, you can remove it with the tip of a knife. Note that meat spots are not the same as blood spots. (For more information see the page on Blood Spot Eggs).
