United Egg Producers certification—cages are still cages

Logo indicating certification by United Egg Producers The United Egg Producers Certified logo that appears on egg cartons gives consumers the impression that commercial egg-laying hens have a big organization looking out for their welfare. But Carole Morison (Food, Inc. heroine) dispels that myth in a lengthy and informative blog post, United Egg Producer Certified….. For Real?

The Humane Society of the United States sums it up this way on its UEP Certified web page, “Battery cage eggs are simply too inhumane for any socially-responsible company or person to support” and offers steps that consumer can take to improve the lives of laying hens.

Know your farmer, know your food. Stop by and visit.
