ALDF Sues Judy’s Eggs for False Advertising

The ALDF has filed a class action lawsuit against the California egg producer, claiming the product’s packaging is misleading consumers.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund filed a class-action lawsuit Monday against California egg producer Judy’s Eggs for using packaging that misleads consumers. Judy’s Family Farm Organic Eggs, owned by Petaluma Egg Farm, uses packaging depicting a hen roaming freely on green grass, and the inside of the packaging reads “these hens are raised in wide open spaces in Sonoma Valley, where they are free to ‘roam, scratch, and play.’” However, in an aerial photo of the farm obtained by ALDF, no birds can be seen outside, and the land is instead occupied by long, factory farm-style sheds. “The lack of clarity regarding ‘cage-free’ and ‘free-range’ eggs is one of the reasons why this false advertising lawsuit is so important,” asserts ALDF Litigation Fellow Chris Berry.
