#ORGANIC INDUSTRY SUING @USDA

The Organic Trade Association, which represents most organic food companies, is suing the USDA, demanding that it implement new rules that require organic egg producers give their chickens more room to roam. The suit stems from organic farms which are allowing birds access to the outside, per organic production rules, by creating ‘screened in porches’ for the birds so they’re protected from predators and disease, but cannot roam freely.
