Are you familiar with California’s Egg Rule? In 2008, Proposition 2 of the Egg Rule was approved by voters which banned the sale of eggs in California unless hens had a minimum amount of space in which to lay their eggs. A couple of years after the Rule approval, legislature enacted a statute applying Proposition 2 to all eggs sold in the State of California, regardless of where they were laid. The State of Missouri took issue with this statute because about one third of the eggs laid in Missouri are sold in California. Last week, Mark Arnold (Partner in our Food and Agribusiness team) details why Missouri is challenging the California Egg Rule. Visit our Food and Ag Law Insights blog to read the full article.
