MISSOURI FARMERS CARE SUPPORTS STATE'S LAWSUIT AGAINST CALIFORNIA EGG PRODUCTION MANDATES
Source: Missouri Farmers Care news release

Missouri Farmers Care (MFC) announced today that the coalition supports Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster's lawsuit against the state of California for its unconstitutional effort to dictate egg production practices in all 50 states.

"Missouri is standing up for consumers and farmers and siding against animal-rights radicals," said MFC Chairman Don Nikodim said. "Free trade between all states is a constitutional requirement and California has gone too far by demanding that egg farmers in all states adhere to unreasonable restrictions in order to sell their products in California."

The California law, which animal-rights extremist group the Humane Society of the United States spearheaded, would require all eggs sold in California to adhere to California regulations. This law would essentially ban interstate commerce on eggs entering into California. Farmers would have to either lose the California market or make expensive capital investments to adhere to California law.

"The California legislature may not mind raising the price of food for their own citizens through scientifically unfounded mandates and regulations, but they do not have a right to raise all Americans' food cost," Nikodim said. "We look forward to more states following Missouri Attorney General Koster's lead and joining his suit to protect consumers and farmers."
