Ashley Byrne, Associate director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). While in the supermarket, we’ve all seen the terms “humane” and “free range” on egg cartons, but what do those terms really mean? According to a recent class-action lawsuit filed by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA,) consumers are being misled into buying eggs sold under Pete and Gerry’s Nellie’s Free-Range Eggs label. The suit claims that labels such as “cage-free,” “free-range,” and “organic” were designed to deceive well-intentioned people into thinking that they’re making kind choices when in fact they were being duped into taking home the very products of crowding and misery that they paid higher prices to avoid.

Children, especially infants, are among the most vulnerable populations when it comes to measles, whooping cough, polio and other highly contagious diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, measles is so contagious that if one person has it, up to 90% of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected. Medicaid and CHIP provide health insurance for children in families with low and moderate incomes (up to nearly $50,000 for a family of 4, or even higher in some states). Many uninsured children may be eligible for coverage, but their parents don’t know it. Families can apply for Medicaid and CHIP coverage any time of the year, but now is the perfect time to enroll to ensure children are ready to participate in summer activities like camp and sports! To get more information, call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669) or visit Find Coverage for Your Family on InsureKidsNow.gov
