Not Free Range Eggs
The Federal Court has found a Perth-based egg producer misled shoppers over its 'free range' hens.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission brought the action against Snowdale Holdings, which has farms in Carabooda and the Swan Valley.
The court heard that most of the chickens did not leave the overstocked barns, which only had one exit that was too small, and it was probable half of the hens never got outside.
Speaking outside court, Humane Society International director Verna Simpson said Snowdale had achieved twice the price it would have got for barn-laid eggs.
Penalties and orders against the company will be made at a date to be set.
This is the same property that City of Wanneroo stated 'they couldn't get enough evidence' to prosecute despite hundreds of kilos of manure and dead carcasses stock-piled around the property.
