ACT Government goes it alone enforcing proper free range egg labelling
The Government of the Australian Capital Territory has introduced laws forcing Canberra supermarkets to display signs on shelves outlining the density of free-range eggs and requires a maximum outdoor stocking density of 1500 hens per hectare. This conflicts with Federal Government regulations allowing a stocking density of 10,000 hens a hectare. This move could confuse consumers unless Federal politicians fix the mistake they made in caving in to pressure from corporate egg producers.Maybe the establishment of a Federal corruption Commission could help to solve the problem.
