Washington State Signs Cage-Free Egg Law

Mon, July 01, 2019 7:38 AM | Anonymous

Washington joins California and Massachusetts by signing legislation that prohibits eggs from caged hens to be sold within the state. While the Washington law won't be fully enacted until 2023, American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (APPPA) would like to remind everyone that pasture-raised hens always lay cage-free eggs.

Cage-free pasture-raised eggs are available now throughout the United States using our find-a-farmer directory.

The clear message for egg producers is that as consumers become educated about industry practices, they reject many of the practices the industry markets as necessary.
