Website Promotes Controversial Egg Housing Legislation
In an effort to promote the passage of legislation that would establish a national standard for hen housing in the egg industry - United Egg Producers has launched a new informational website. Legislators, consumers, foodservice and retail executives and others can learn more about this measure at www dot eggbill dot com (www.eggbill.com). The bill - introduced by Oregon 5th District Representative Kurt Schrader - would codify the controversial agreement between the United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States that would transition egg production away from conventional cages by the end of 2029.
