Consumers were urged to be cautious when eating eggs from caged chickens after The Humane Society of the United States said an undercover investigation exposed deplorable conditions at a Texas egg farm.

Cal-Maine issued a written response to the investigation, which reads, in part:

“Cal-Maine foods has been a leader in accepting and implementing animal welfare measures. All of the company’s facilities are operated in full compliance with existing environment, health and safety laws.”

I am glad I am raising my own chickens.
