Egg farmers in Newfoundland and Labrador and nationwide have implemented a comprehensive on-farm food safety program called Start Clean-Stay Clean™. The program includes everything from on-farm inspections, to mandated standards for storage, cleanliness, air quality, feed and record keeping.
Canadian egg farmers follow feed regulations set by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), part of which states that steroids and hormones are not approved for use in Canada. This means that the eggs you buy at the store do not contain steroids or hormones.
