UK Famers Break Egg Law

Despite lecturing other EU countries, the UK is still not Compliant with the EU battery cage ban. It was revealed that around 30 egg producers in the UK are still using illegal battery cages. According to figures issued by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), these cages could contain as many as 300,000 hens. This appalling news comes despite the regular and repeated assurances from the British egg industry that UK farmers would indeed be fully compliant with the ban on these cages when it came into force on 1st January this year. Urge Defra to take immediate action now Join the campaign along with "chicken out" and "compassion in world farming".

You've missed a "not" out of your top line. I hope.
