***USA - ACTION ALERT***

The National Organic Standards Board is being bullied by the United Egg Producers, lobbyists for industrial farms, into continuing to allow the use of methionine, a synthetic feed additive that was supposed to be phased out of organic poultry and egg production 5 years ago. The use of synthetic methionine allows egg producers to keep their hens indoors and feed them a cheap ration of corn and soybeans. If they weren't allowed to use synthetic methionine, they would have to treat the hens better, give them healthier feed, and make sure they got outdoors to forage in pasture. Of course, that would eliminate the 30,000-hen factory farms that have become common in organic egg production, and big greedy agribusinesses might not be as interested in organic if they had to do it right.
