HSUS Seeks Cage-free Eggs, Crate-free Pork, in California

DanIndustry News Release

hsusThe Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has launched a new initiative to force California farmers to adopt cage-free egg production and gestation crate-free pork production. Last week, HSUS and other groups filed ballot language that would require eggs produced and sold in the state to come from cage-free birds, and that pork sold come from farms that do not use gestation crates, and that veal sold there does not come from farms that use crates. Once the California Secretary of State issues a ballot title and summary, the coalition will attempt to gather the 365,880 signatures required, within 180 days, for placement on the statewide ballot in November 2018.
