Let's start with the bold text claim "Organic", reinforced by the round green and white USDA Organic seal. Greener Choices is currently a little dubious about this one, as applied to meat, dairy, eggs and processed foods.
If you are a purist, (I'm not) you wouldn't put much stock in this one.
"Pasture raised" turns out to be even more dubious.
Oops. Not much to go on here.
"No hormones or antibiotics" doesn't live up to its promise either.
The small circular label in the upper right corner next to USDA/Organic turns out to receive strong approval.
This certification doesn't seem to say anything about the living conditions of laying hens.
Nor, according to Greener Choices, does the round yellow, blue, and red circular label in the far upper right from "American Humane Certified" mean much.
I'm glad I'm not a chicken.
Interestingly, these particular Costco eggs get high marks from "Certified Humane Raised and Handled" which itself is a label Greener Choices considers "meaningful and verified."
Obviously, the people selling us eggs think we care about this stuff. But it looks as if even somewhat conscientious farmers and vendors have a long way to go to be marketing to us products which accord with what we expect from their claims. On the other hand, pretty good food is abundant and often quite cheap. I'm glad I have it.
