Cal-Maine’s Cruelty Leads to LawsuitPosted by Stephen Wells, ALDF's Executive Director on December 14, 2010
In an effort to stop the horrific abuses to birds and the human health risks posed by Cal-Maine Foods, Inc.–the nation’s largest egg supplier–at its chicken-raising and egg production facility in Waelder, Texas, concerned residents of Travis County and Gonzales County, Texas,
represented by the Animal Legal Defense Fund, are
filing a lawsuit in Travis County District Court today.
Cal-Maine came under an international spotlight last month when an undercover investigation there revealed harrowing, clearly illegal conditions for chickens and a veritable breeding ground for human health threats.
