Default Are your eggs really organically grown?

Seems many large egg producers that claim the organic label are really using the same old mass egg production techniques.

Egg producers against which Cornucopia is filing a complaint:

The Country Hen (Hubbartson, Massachusetts)
Hillandale (Spring Grove, Pennsylvania)
Petaluma Farms (Petaluma, California)
Paul Fuenger Farm (Genoa, Wisconsin)

Egg producers that signed a letter opposing outdoor access for chickens as an organic standard:

Cal-Maine Foods
Chino Valley Ranchers organic facility in Idalou, Texas
Delta Egg Farms
Dixie Egg Company
Fassio Egg Farms
Fort Recovery Equity, Inc.
Herbruck's Poultry Ranch (green meadow organics) in Saranac, Michigan
Kreher's Farm Fresh Eggs, LLC
Nature Pure, LLC
Oakdell Egg Farms
Ritewood, Inc.
R.W. Sauder, Inc.
