Lawfully Selling Shelled Eggs in California

The legal landscape for the sale of shelled eggs in California will dramatically change on January 1, 2015. On that date, Proposition 2 (Health & Safety Code §§ 25990-25994), AB 1437 (Health & Safety Code §§ 25995-25996) and California Department of Food and Agriculture regulations (3 CCR §§ 1350 and1354) take effect. These laws govern the permissible enclosure size for egg-laying hens and define the shelled eggs that are lawful to sell in California. AB 1437 imposes criminal penalties on anyone who sells shelled eggs in violation of the law. This webinar will focus on the requirements of these laws and on steps California retailers can take to make sure they are lawfully selling shell eggs beginning January 1, 2015.
