New fallout from an ABC7 I-Team report on alleged chicken abuse at a central valley egg farm.

Trader Joe's announced on Thursday it will stop selling eggs from Gemperle Enterprises.

A video was shot by a member of the 'Mercy for Animals' organization infiltrated the farm. MFA says chickens there live in squalor, and are routinely brutalized.

Trader Joe's says it only carries eggs from vendors who meet established animal industry care practices.
