Buying organic eggs is a good way to fight factory farming—but only if you buy eggs from organic farms that raise their hens on pasture.
 
Unfortunately, there are a lot of so-called “organic” eggs on grocery shelves that come from farms that operate more like factories, than farms—despite the pretty pictures on their labels.
 
Which national organic brands are the worst offenders? Egg-Land’s Best® and Land O’ Lakes® brands, along with many organic private-label store brands, according to a recent Cornucopia Institute investigation of the organic egg industry.
 
Based on animal welfare issues, and the fact that these brands come from farms that feed their chickens synthetic methionine, we’re calling on all consumers to boycott Egg-Land’s Best and Land O’Lakes organic eggs. We also advise consumers to steer clear of store brand organic eggs.
 
Find out how to avoid these brands, and learn more about the big organic producers that own the brands—their crimes against animals, and their dismal track records when it comes to following the USDA’s National Organic Program’s rules for organic egg production.

TAKE ACTION: Boycott Egg-Land's Best & Land O' Lakes Eggs

 

Buying organic eggs is a good way to fight factory farming--but only if you buy eggs from organic farms that raise their hens on pasture.

In a recent investigation of the organic egg industry, the Cornucopia Institute used aerial photography to document the troubling fact that the biggest companies producing organic eggs don’t even give their hens access to the outdoors (a requirement of the federal organic regulations), let alone pasture. 

Instead, these corporate agribusinesses confine their egg-laying hens by the tens, or even hundreds of thousands, in huge warehouses. 

TAKE ACTION: Tell Egg-Land’s Best and Land O’Lakes you’re boycotting their “organic” eggs until they stop producing them on factory farms. - See more at: http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/50865/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=16199#sthash.8TV1ZXwe.dpufRead more
