Hi Kathleen! Thanks for adding to the conversation; you make a great point. To be sure, there are many other worthwhile points of discussion about egg production that aren't covered in this post. We've edited the post to try to make it clearer that the chart is meant to clarify the claim the label makes. A checkmark in the Animal Welfare column does not necessarily mean that it gets a rubber stamp for how the animals are treated -- only that it makes some claim about animal welfare, as opposed to, say, quality. Keep the thoughtful comments coming!
