Nov. 9, 2016 – All eggs, pork and veal produced and sold in Massachusetts will be required to come from humanely-caged animals by 2022 as Massachusetts voters decided in favor of Question 3 on Nov. 8.

The Associated Press declared Yes on 3 had prevailed at about 10:15 p.m.

Effective Jan. 1, 2022, the law makes it illegal for any farm owner or operator to “knowingly cause any covered animal to be confined in a cruel manner,” and for any business in the state to buy eggs, pork or veal “that the business owner or operator knows or should know is the product of a covered animal that was confined in a cruel manner.” | READ MORE.
