Compassion Over Killing (COK) hosted a “biohazard crew” demonstration outside the Rayburn House Office Building on September 22, where inside the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce committee heard the testimonies of the owners of the egg farms from this past August’s massive egg recall. The demonstrators held signs that said “Rotten Eggs from a Rotten Industry,” and “Recall the Cruelty.” The goal of the demonstration was to expose the conditions of egg-laying hens who are kept in wire cages, and the relation the conditions have to increasing the risk of salmonella.
