Nellie’s Free Range Eggs

In March 2019, a class-action lawsuit was filed alleging that Nellie’s Free Range Eggs are falsely advertised as coming from hens that live “better lives” with room to spread out and move, access to green grass, and the opportunity to form social relationships when, according to plaintiffs, the hens are kept in overcrowded spaces where they cannot extend their wings or reach outdoor space, which causes the hens stress and trauma leading them to fight other hens and hurt themselves. (Lugones et al v. Pete and Gerry’s Organics, LLC and Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, Case No. 19-cv-2097, S. D. NY.)
