Using guilt to increase profits : Big Business and the Big Left cluck at us.
Seen at a Save-On-Foods store in BC: All the good price eggs have an alarming messasge: "CAGE EGGS hens in cages, behaviours restricted".
Does that remind you of the incandescent light bulbs that are losing shelf space to expensive bulbs from the same manufacturers, bulbs that are better for some things and much worse for others? (Around here I think of $3.69 as a good not-on-sale price for large brown eggs and prices close to $5.00/dozen being common for anything with a fancy green pedigree.)
Pick up a dozen from the Cage Eggs rack if you must but make sure no one is watching you.
