Happy Egg Co. and Organic Consumers Association Resolve Legal Action Concerning ‘Pasture-Raised’ Egg Claims

OCA and Happy Egg Co. are both committed to raising the animal welfare standard of eggs and reducing customer confusion.


April 23, 2021

Rogers, Ark. – Happy Egg Co. and Organic Consumers Association (OCA) today announced that they have resolved a consumer-protection action that OCA filed against Happy Egg Co. in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on March 24, 2020, concerning labels mentioning “pasture” on Happy Egg Co.’s egg cartons and marketing materials. 

As part of this announcement, Happy Egg Co. is clarifying that its eggs are certified as “free range” by the American Humane Association (“AHA”). 

Happy Egg Co. concurs with the OCA’s passion to protect and advocate for consumers’ right to safe and healthful food, and to transparent marketing. They are dedicated to remaining transparent in their practices in hopes to eventually eliminate consumer confusion around the egg industry and its vocabulary.

“At Happy Egg one of our core values is to Raise The Standard. We’re grateful for the Organic Consumer Association pushing us and the industry here as well. Every day we at Happy Egg will continue to wake up and explore ways to make things better for our farmers, our hens, and our consumers,” said Dan Arnsperger, CEO. 

“OCA is pleased to have reached this resolution with Happy Egg Co. and will continue to advocate for uniformity of standards for egg labeling and help achieve their collective goals of maintaining high-quality, humanely raised, and truthfully labeled food,” said Ronnie Cummins, OCA co-founder and international director.
