I was in the Trader Joes in Philadelphia, where they had a sign by one shelf of eggs which read "local" and listed a town (the name of which I forgot), PA. I asked the folks up front whether these "local" eggs were farm raised because there was no indication of that, cage free, or organic on the sign. My worry was that they were produced in a "local" factory. The price seemed too low otherwise. The answer I got was that they don't know exactly where they are from, just that they are from this place indicated on the sigh. Thoughts?
