Lawsuit filed against Walmart for claiming "cage-free" eggs

17 January 2018, at 12:00am

A lawsuit has been filed in the US against Walmart and Cal-Maine Foods which claims they lied to customers about access to outdoors for laying hens, reports the Modern Farmer.

Despite claiming that the eggs produced by Cal-Maine Foods and sold by Walmart are cage-free, they only appear to be so in a legal sense, rather than an actual physical sense. Modern Farmer reports that despite packaging which states hens have access to the outdoors, the hens are actually fully enclosed.

This comes in the midst of recent announcements by a number of companies including Lo & Behold (Singapore), Carrefour (France) and Nestlé (global), to name only a few, to go cage-free by 2025.
