Egg carton claims not all they're cracked up to be, suggests report

Egg carton claims not all they're cracked up to be, suggests report

Are the supposed "humanely-raised" eggs you buy from the grocery store really
"natural" and "free-range"? What about the all-too-common claim made that eggs
come from "cage-free" chickens? And what do all these terms actually mean in
practical, legal terms? In a new study, Sheila Rodriguez from the Rutgers
University School of Law asserts that many of these claims are both
unsubstantiated and deceptive, and that consumers need to be aware of the dirty
truth behind the eggs they buy.

"Most hens are packed eight or nine hens
to a cage ... [and the cages are] so small that [hens] are unable to stretch a
wing," she says in the report, which has been published in the Temple Journal
of Science, Technology & Environmental Law
. "The overcrowding causes
them to fight, so their beaks are cut off to prevent them from injuring other birds. The fewer than 5 percent
of eggs in the US that are
not produced under these conditions are from hens
that were not even allowed outside."

Many of the eggs produced in these
horrific conditions, of course, are later sold in cartons blanketed with
nice-sounding animal welfare language, which gives consumers the false
impression that such eggs are superior to conventional eggs. Even "cage-free"
eggs can come from birds that have lived in factory-farm hatcheries, and that
continue to be confined in indoor pens where they never see the natural light of day -- and
this all occurs because of the dubious laws that govern the issue, as
well as lax enforcement of existing laws.

"[M]any of the production
method claims made by egg producers cannot be accurately verified," adds
Rodriguez. "Industry standards are factory farmed standards. Federally-verified
claims made under the National Organic Program, though comprehensive, are
problematic because of lax enforcement."

And yet many producers continue
to make glowing claims on their cartons, which in turn allows them to charge
consumers more for them. Even organic eggs, which typically
bear the highest price tags, often come from hens that, while fed organic feed,
still live in confinement or get little-to-no outdoor access.

pasture-raised, free-range hens on the
other hand produce eggs with solid shells, deep-yellow yolks, and superior
overall taste. Many backyard and small-scale family farms produce and sell
genuine pastured eggs from hens that are allowed to roam and peck freely, and
anyone who has tried or that regularly eats eggs from such hens will be able to
discern an obvious difference.

It is the Ministry of NSearch that all inherit the Kingdom of God

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law....

Now the works of the flesh are evident, 

which are adultery fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies,

outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy,

murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like;

of which I (Paul the Apostle) tell you beforehand,

just as I also told you in time past, that those who 

practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering,

kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control,

against such there is no law. Those who are Christ's

have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,

envying one another.

Galatians 5:18-26

{Sorcery: "Pharmakia;" Primarily mentioned as one of the "works of the flesh." In "sorcery" the use of drugs. Blue Letter Bible. Galatians 5:20}
