Court rejects animal rights groups' bid for egg carton label rules

Published Wednesday March 1

SAN FRANCISCO — A USA appeals court in San Francisco rejected a bid by 2 animal welfare groups to require egg carton labels to show whether the egg-laying hens were cage-free.

The nineth America Circuit Court of Appeals commented the Food and Drug Administration and 3 other federal agencies met the legal standard for acting reasonably when they considered but rejected the groups’ request for label requirements.

The Cotati-based Animal Legal Defense Fund and WA D.C.-based Compassion Over Killing wanted the agencies to set rules for labels specifying Free-Range Eggs, Cage-Free Eggs or Eggs from Caged Hens.
