Egg producer here hit for treatment of hens

US - A Philadelphia-based animal rights group levied animal cruelty allegations today against a Lancaster County egg production company.

Hugs for Puppies, a non-profit, volunteer organization, had scheduled a noon press conference in Philadelphia today to announce its complaints against Kreider Farms.

While Kreider’s treatment of its egg-laying hens is no different from any other large poultry company in America, Lisa Levinson, a spokeswoman for the animal rights group said this morning, the Lancaster County business is being singled out because it is one of the state’s largest egg production companies.
