New California Egg Laws and Regulations: Jan 1st 2015

12th January 2015

On November 4, 2008, California voters passed Proposition 2, which changed the way many hens in egg production are housed today. California passed legislation, A.B. 1437, on July 6, 2010, which requires any shell eggs sold in California be produced by hens raised in California-compliant systems and that they be labeled accordingly. On January 1, 2015, the new regulations require any shell eggs sold in California be produced by hens raised in California-compliant housing systems, meeting the requirements as determined by A.B. 1437, CDFA’s Sec. 1350 & 1354. These laws specify food safety, hen space and carton labeling requirements.
