Radlo Foods Pledging Conversion to Cage-Free Eggs

Critter News

Good news following an investigation of farm animal abuses by Mercy for Animals. Sometime soon, David Radlo of Radlo Foods says his sign in front of the former DeCoster Egg Farm will be coming down and all his business at the massive egg operation in Turner will come to an end. Radlo says he will no longer rely on hens or eggs that come from Maine Contract Farming, the company owned by egg farm magnate Jack DeCoster, one of the nation's biggest producers of brown eggs.

Trader Joe's Eggs NOT Humane

Critter News

But are they really free-range eggs? They also offer "Cage Free" eggs. Tags: eggs consumption farm animal welfare groceries
