Industry Gets Egg On Its Face

posted on September 22, 2006

The egg industry has dropped its "Animal Care Certified" logos on egg cartons in response to complaints by animal rights groups and officials from Alaska and 15 other states.

Opponents say consumers were being misled. The industry has replaced the logos, which now read, "United Egg Producers Certified."

The industry also has agreed to pay $100,000 to states for attorney fees, consumer education and other costs.
