Questions about measure words

Hi folks, could someone help me with some measure words.

The course I'm using at the moment in conjunction with CPod is teaching the word egg as: yi2 ge ji1 dan4 but my Chinese friend says the measure word he was taught at school was yi2 li4 ji1 dan4.

Likewise, he says that yi2 ge ping2 guo3 should be yi2 li4 ping2 guo3.

I'm really confused, can someone please help.
