In January 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Walmart and Cal-Maine Foods for allegedly falsely advertising that Organic Marketside “farm fresh” eggs are laid by hens with access to the outdoors when, according to the complaint, the hens are kept in industrial barns that have enclosed porches with roofs and screens and these porches do not provide “outdoor access.” (Gibson et al v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and Cal-Maine Foods, Inc.
, Case No. 18-cv-134, N. D. CA.)
