told you that the Federal Trade Commission announced that as of April 1, 2006, the United Egg Producers' misleading "Animal Care Certified" logo will be gone from egg cartons on store shelves nationwide. This landmark victory came two years after Compassion Over Killing launched our campaign to put an end the egg industry's national public relations scam that misled consumers concerned about animal cruelty. Consumers should now expect to find an alternative logo reading "United Egg Producers Certified."

COK Launches New Website:

The decision to remove the deceptive "Animal Care Certified" logo from egg cartons nationwide is a step in the right direction for the egg industry. The guidelines set forth by the United Egg Producers, however, still allow for routine animal cruelty that includes intensively confining hens in wire cages so small, they cannot spread their wings.

In our ongoing efforts to pressure the industry to eliminate these abuses, we've launched a new website,, to expose the hard-boiled truth about modern egg production. This new online resource offers a photo gallery and video room revealing the conditions for hens inside battery cage egg facilities, expert opinions explaining the inherent cruelty of battery cages, a list of ways you can help egg-laying hens, and much more.
