People of faith urged to avoid 'cruelty' eggs

A leading animal welfare campaigner has called on people of faith to exercise caution when buying eggs from shops and supermarkets. While British farmers have spent £400 million complying with a new EU law, which came into force on January 1, 2012, on the size of battery cages, egg producers in 13 other EU countries have refused to stop using the tiny cages. Compassion In World Farming’s Director of Public Affairs Joyce D’Silva told the Alliance of Religions And Conservation: 'CIWF urges people of faith to be extra-vigilant when they are buying eggs from shops and supermarkets. They could find they are being offered eggs that could have been produced by farmers who are not complying with the new EU laws.' To read the full story click here .
