Oppose CA Assembly Bill 236

AB 236 has been introduced in California to give the Egg Commission authority over "nutrition research." If enacted, this bill could prevent future passage of legislation to ban forced molting, the cruel Salmonella-promoting industry practice of starving hens to manipulate egg production. The California Egg Commission has close ties to the egg industry and is currently involved in advertising and research to promote egg production and sales. Passage of AB 236 could block animal advocates' efforts to ban forced molting and other cruel practices such as keeping hens in battery cages. If the Egg Commission were given authority to promote eggs, they could falsely argue that eggs are too important to human nutrition for the egg industry to incur costs that would boost the price of eggs. Say No to AB 236.

Contact your Assembly member and urge him/her to oppose AB 236:
