In a lawsuit filed March 14, the Organic Consumers Association challenged Eggland’s Best’s claims about its packaging recyclability, animal welfare and nutritional superiority.

Eggland’s Best, the second-largest U.S. egg producer, misled consumers about its packaging recyclability, animal welfare and nutritional superiority, according to a consumer advocacy group.

“We’ve been concerned that Eggland’s Best may be marketing what it calls ‘superior’ eggs when the nutritional claims about those eggs don’t hold up under testing,” Organic Consumers Association (OCA) National Director Rose Welch told The Defender.

“We’ve also identified representations that Eggland’s Best makes about the recyclability of its packaging and welfare of the egg-laying hens in its supply chain that we allege don’t comport with reality,” she said. “These types of claims matter to consumers, and they shouldn’t be made if they are misleading or untrue.”
