Animal Welfare Approved Featured in Today’s New York Times

Catherine Price wrote an article in today”s New York Times about various claims and labels that consumers find on egg cartons. Once again, Animal Welfare Approved was lauded as having the highest standards for the humane treatment of animals. She writes:

“For eggs from chickens that live in the sort of utopia conveyed by the images on most egg cartons, look for “animal welfare approved.” Available in limited markets, it is a new label by the Animal Welfare Institute that is given only to independent family farmers. Flocks can have no more than 500 birds, and chickens over 4 weeks old must be able to spend all their time outside on pesticide-free pasture with a variety of vegetation. They must have access to dust baths and cannot have their beaks trimmed (a practice on crowded egg farms) or be fed animal byproducts.”
