Prosecutors are investigating around 200 German egg farmers suspected of falsely labelling their produce as free-range in a systematic fraud.
Millions of eggs seem to have been sold under false pretences over the last few years, exploiting the willingness of some customers to pay extra för produce from more humanely kept birds.
Those under suspicion were largely conventional farms, but some organic farms were also affected.
This is reported from Germany but I am sure this is the case in many other countries.
