What a great post. This whole situation is so sad. I was horrified to hear, on the news, that there were plans to turn at least some of the recalled eggs into mayonnaise. I hope that people do try to recuperate their expenses, then maybe change will be initiated.

thanks for the updated numbers.

Even if the industry was overhauled, and made responsible, the animals and environment would suffer greatly, for a 'product' that is so not needed, and in many doctors opinions, not a good 'food' at all. Think about what an egg is, Ack!

Whenever one being uses another for financial gain, the money will take precedence over the being.

As long as there is a demand for eggs, the suffering will continue. It's not something that can be done in a humane way.

Getting to root of the issue, Let's help people learn that eggs are not a valid food choice, and reduce the demand.



Thank you Gene, for your continued efforts to fight back against factory farming and the incredible abuse these animals suffer for no good reason.

Has anyone mounted an effort to file a class action lawsuit against big agri-business? It seems to me the evidence is pretty overwhelming as to the negative health and environmental impact of these deplorable practices, why not take it to the highest court possible? Didn't this happen several decades ago with the tobacco industry?

I for one would sign the dotted line on any type of legal action to put an end to this insanity.

Keep up the good work, Gene.
