raw eggs?

I don't know if this is the right place to ask...
I just tried a new recipe - fruit timarisu with strawberries... it all seemed to go well but then I realised that the eggs I used were not the fresh ones that we bought this morning, but a box that go out of date tomorrow.
Also, the recipe says to leave overnight in the fridge, so I did so. But now I've read that you are supposed to eat dishes with raw egg as soon as possible.
So... I'm a bit scared that I'm going to poison my guests tomorrow.

Do you think they're safe to eat?

Should be fine - eggs are actually ok beyond their use by date and as long as they were lion stamped and you are storing your tiramisu properly (ie in the fridge) you should be fine

Thanks so much Blondie1984
The only thing is I'm in France so I don't think they'll be lion stamped. They are definitely in the fridge though...

I'm sure they will still be fine @sleepy78 - if they were "off" then you would have smelled it or seen evidence of it when you cracked them - I'm sure your tiramisu will be delicious and your guests will enjoy every mouthful

I would have made sure none of the guests were or could be pregnant though.

@sleepy78 really pleased that it went well - not that I had any doubts - and 5 people having it is quite a triumph! It sounds like you not only took very good care of your guests but you sent them away with happy tummies!
I hope you managed to enjoy your evening despite the anxiety
